Bla bla bla. I make dressup games, write stories, like to sing. Not much else to say, really.

I don't make fanart, and I don't take requests. You can suggest ideas to me, but don't be too surprised if I say no.

Dressup game making and storywriting are both unpredictable and timeconsuming processes, so please don't ask me when my stories or games are done, chances are I don't know the answer. Glitches and writing blocks can show up at any time, and I don't want to disappoint people by giving a deadline that I won't be able to keep.
Interests
Once again, I underestimated just how big a dressup game can get, even a fairly small one. I really dont think I will be able to fit 24 games into one file, so the alternative is to let a third of the days be jigsaw puzzles instead.
These are the cultures that will be dressup games and wont be switched out with jigsaw puzzles:
-Sioux
-Kroj
-Ainu
-Rococo
-Sámi
-Han Dynasty
-Maori
-Imperial Russia
-Nubia
-Inca
-Norsemen
-Ottoman Empire
-Celts
-Zulu
-Czechoslovakia

Now, I have a question for you guys: do you want something other than jigsaw puzzles? It has to be something small, something that doesnt take up a lot of space. This can include pictures, ad-libs, jigsaw puzzles, winter-related/Christmas-related trivia, short stories, whatever.

Hello! I'm so glad I've found another Norwegian here! I was born in Norway, and lived in Egersund and Røros before I moved to Canada with my parents. 
(PS: your dress-up games are to die for! They're pretty much the only Scandinavian folklore games I can find, and it's even better that the quality is incredible!)

Hey there. :)
Thank you. Yeah, there arent really any others out there that Ive found. There are few Scandinavians on DeviantArt, and even fewer among them who know how to make Flash games.

I love your dress-up games :happybounce:  they're so much fun.  You must put a lot of work into them :D (Big Grin) .  I especially like them because they're part of my heritage as well as yours.  My ancestors are from Scandinavia too.  In fact, our family name is derived from the old Norwegian word "hammer/stone of Thor." Isn't that cool?  Also, if you saw us in Norway, my family looks so much like the natives you wouldn't know we were American until we talked :giggle:.

Torstein? Yeah, thats a pretty common name over here, though its more common as a first name than as a last name.

You're close :giggle:.  It's an Anglicized version of that name.  There's even a town smack-dab in the center of Suffolk County in England called that, & I'm not surprised, considering it would be prime grounds for Viking attacks in ancient times.  I'd prefer not to say it on here, for privacy reasons.

Ah, I see.
Yeah, I can understand that. It occured to me after I had posted the comment, but I figured I might not have been completely spot on anyways, plus I could have easily hidden the comment once Id gotten a reply anyways.
Theres actually a reality show on Norwegian TV called Alt For Norge (All for Norway. Not sure what its called in English, I dont think its very popular outside of Norway) where a bunch of Americans of Norwegian descent participate in a bunch of contests involving Norwegian culture, and they also learn about their ancestors, and eventually get pictures and contact information for their living Norwegian relatives, though only the winner of the show gets an all-paid for stay. Its quite amusing to see Norway from the perspectives of someone who knows very little about the country, hearing them try to pronounce our words or seeing them try out our weird national dishes and whatnot. And of course, theres the crying. I think American culture is a lot more sensitive than Norwegian culture, because these people cry ALL the time, and I honestly cant imagine a lot of Norwegians would do the same in their position, but its kind of endearing, really.

I really love your games! I myself, is from Denmark, so i really loved Nissemaker especially:-D But would you ever consider making a game with all the nordic gods? Like Loke, Freja, Odin and so on?
