Jonathan SmårsLead Engineer and Designer on ValheimIron Gate Studio

Jonathan is a Swedish guy who has been a game developer for pretty much his whole life. He started out in the modding scene when he was in the 7th grade when a truck he made for an Unreal Tournament mod got featured in the PC Gamer magazine. Since then he has worked on a number of games, both Triple A and indie. He loves joining game jams and has made many games by himself from scratch. He started out as purely a 3D artist, but has moved into primarily engineering, game design and project management. He joined the Iron Gate team to work on Valheim and is now working as lead engineer on finishing the game that was a huge success and has sold over 12 million copies during early access release on Steam and Xbox game pass.
