Hey /r/IAmA! I’m Jens Matthies, Creative Director for Wolfenstein: The New Order. Get psyched because I’m here to answer your questions! AMA!
Hello! I'm Jens Matthies, Creative Director at MachineGames, makers of soon to be released video game Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Living and working in Uppsala, Sweden, I grew up a computer geek and was active on the Atari demo scene in the early 90’s.
My career in games development started when I got in on the ground floor of a studio called Starbreeze in 1998, where we shipped games such as The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and The Darkness. After 11 years at Starbreeze, myself and a few other colleagues broke out on our own and formed MachineGames which is now a part of the Bethesda family. Developing Wolfenstein: The New Order is a dream come true for me. The game is a dark tale, set in an alternate history 1960’s, featuring classic protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz embarking on an epic adventure to overthrow the Nazi regime that has won WWII and conquered the world. It’s our love letter to id Software and the old school shooters that made us want to become game developers.
When not making games, I ride jet skis, dabble in MMA, grow vegetables and indulge my weird obsession for making floor plans. (Any questions on these topics will also be most appreciated.)

EDIT: Dear Reddit. I enjoyed the hell out of this AMA. I wish I could stay all night and answer everything, but now I gotta go see about a girl in Finland. See you on the flipside.
