The Polder to the Valley – The man behind Jazz and Killzone




Arjan Brussee began his career as a game programmer in the ’90s, when he made together with Cliff Bleszinski for American Epic MegaGames the sidescroller Jazz Jackrabbit. The following years Brussee programmed some games for the American publisher, but at some point he decided to start his studio Orange Games for themselves. Orange Games went after a few years, along with two other game studios, in Lost Boys Games. In 2004, Lost Boys Games disconnected from the former parent company and it continued as Guerilla Games. In Guerilla Brussee was in the role of Technical Director responsible for the technical side of the Killzone franchise, whose games were released for the PlayStation 2, 3 and Portable.

Brussee Guerilla has since left and works in California at Visceral Games, a studio of Electronic Arts, on a secret project. We visited him and talked about the early beginnings of Jazz Jackrabbit and how he became one of the most successful people in the Dutch game industry.
