I’m Patrick Polewiak, a game designer from Poland. Four years in small indie gamedev and a half in commercial companies. These days I work for Madman Theory Games on a horror game project. Earlier, I worked in IntoXicated Studios on Afterfall: Reconquest as Level Designer.
I created this blog to improve my English. Just trying to inspire other people because I love it and want to make something huge.
Psychology fan, buddy of S. Freud and dr. H. Lecter. Loves listening to instrumental and rock/metal music. Rise Against warrior.

Game “Haunt” in Madman Theory Games
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” “Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.”
And the important thing:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
