Jim Offerman

game developer & musician  


I am an independent game developer and singer/songwriter. I work and live in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with my lovely wife Lobke and our baby daughter Dinte.

From my early teens onward, I alternately dreamt about running a game studio or becoming a recording artist. One dream led me to tour with my band and write and record a bunch of albums, the other dream landed me a job at Nixxes Software.

When, in 2010, I was offered the chance to lead the development of Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC), I chose to fully embrace that path. In doing so, I learned a lot about leading teams and, along the way, developed a keen interest in the art of doing business.

Now, as an independent creator, I am no longer chosing one dream over the other. It's the combination of both things that makes me, well... me. Therefore, in addition to developing Stable Orbit, I am writing, rehearsing and - soon - recording new songs.

I’m passionate about games and music, obviously, but also about movies, books, photography, design and good food.
