The new Not-So-True-Crime Podcast “Rumgemordet”

Together with my good friend, Lukas Fritsch, I’m launching a brand new podcast called “Rumgemordet”, and we can’t wait for you to join us on this thrilling journey!

If you’re a fan of true crime podcasts, you’re in for a treat. However, we’re adding our unique twist: instead of discussing real crime cases, each episode features improvised, fictional cases that unfold in real-time. Set on the mysterious and fictive island of Nebelkoog in the North Sea, our podcast blends suspense, humor, and creativity in a way that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Lukas and I have always been fascinated by the storytelling magic found in true crime podcasts. We wanted to capture that same intrigue and suspense but with a fun and imaginative spin. Every episode, you’ll be introduced to new characters, puzzling scenarios, and intriguing plots—all crafted on the spot, leading to unpredictable and often hilarious outcomes.

More information and all available episodes can be found on our website.

Becoming an author

I’m thrilled to announce the publication of my very first book, which I co-authored with my father Hartmut Engel, a seasoned writer renowned for his hiking and travel books. Our book, “MeinTrip Lüneburger Heide,” is a comprehensive travel guide offering insights and tips for exploring the enchanting Lüneburger Heide region. From picturesque landscapes to hidden gems, this guide is crafted to help adventurers discover the beauty and charm of this unique destination.

More information about the book can be found here.

InnoGames Techblog Post

As I switched focusses of used programming technologies quite often during my job at InnoGames, I gathered quite a lot of insights what are the most effective ways of getting into a new technology.

To share my experiences and explain my methods of learning programming languages I wrote a post on the InnoGames Techblog. The InnoGames Techblog is a blog maintained by the developers of InnoGames and can be used to share knowledge inside and outside of the company. Each month one new post is written by an employee of the company.

New Project – Pen and Paper Podcast

My latest project is this time something completely different. I am part of a team that is working on a so called “Pen and Paper Podcast”.

The basic idea is to post process the audio recording of a round of pen and paper by stripping off boring parts and adding sound effects and ambient sounds and music.

We are a team of ten people consisting of graphic designers, web designers, story tellers, speakers and a narrator. Everybody is working with a lot of commitment and heart on the project to make it as good as possible.

My good friend Lukas and I released our very first app for Android on the 25th of March to the Google Play Store!

It is a drinking game we developed. After developing the game as a dice game with real dices, we decided to make a digital version out of the game.

We developed the game with Unity 3D in a time frame of about three months. While Lukas did the animations I did the programming part in the project.

Check the game out in the Google Play Store!
