A few questions … Sonja Wild

Sonja Wild is one of our authors and that’s why we let her answer some questions, so you get to know her better – a bit.

I work as …

an editor, blogger and occasional podcaster. I am one of the editors of WASD and a team member of the newly-founded games blog Lost Levels, where I try to write regularly about indie games. I also work as a curator for great online games journalism on piqd.de.

For me video games are …

a thing of excitement and wonder that seemed to come straight from the future when I was young. While the novelty has worn off over the years, the best video games for me still are something to totally get lost in, not only to play, but to experience in a way no other medium allows.

The most embarrassing moment of my gaming career was …

when I found out that I had been wrong about the name of my favourite multiplayer game for years: It's “wörms“, not “worms“, stupid! (I liked it better before, though)

The best game nobody has played is …

Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor! It combines RPG and adventure elements in a tiny world with a zeitgeisty, colorful low-poly look and indie weirdness, but behind its hip facade it is so much more: It's a game about the struggles of the working poor, full of warmth, humor and disgusting alien food. I love it so much I even listen to its soundtrack while running.

Games journalism should …

find the interesting stories behind the obvious stories. It should aim for something very different from both standard review boredom and ivory tower musings. It should be clever and fun and give a voice to everyone, especially those whose voices aren't heard often enough.
