Niels ’t Hooft, hybrid writer / video game romantic

Hello! I’m Niels, born in 1980, living in Utrecht, The Netherlands, with my wife and two daughters.

I’m a hybrid writer: a novelist on the lookout for something new and exciting. For example, I unconventionally tested my latest book and built an innovative iPad reading app. My most hybrid project so far is Geometry Girl.

I’m also something of a video game romantic, having written about this burgeoning medium since the nineties — see my work timeline. These days I often help produce games — see my game development services.
