Technical Director & Co-Founder
Born in 1985, right after the videogame crash and in the beginning of a new golden age, he grew up with NES, SNES, Mega Drive and his first PC. In 1997 he read a BASIC-Book and programmed his first Text-Adventure for his brother’s birthday, „Survive Afternoon School“. As he dived further in programming and the architecture of videogames, he started studying Applied Computer Sciences in 2007. After a workshop with the „Filmakademie“, his decision was set. He wanted to make story-driven games for a living. Games, which should take the player to places they’ve never been before.
Alexander then founded Studio Fizbin together with Sebastian and Mareike and took over the role of the Technical Director in 2011 and began working on his biggest project till then, “The Inner World”. In 2013 “The Inner World” was released and found its way through the App-Store and Steam to many players around the world. It also won several awards including the most important award in Germany, “Best German Game” in 2014.
Right now he is working as Game Director and Technical Director on Studio Fizbins newest project: „Beyond The Mountains“ a exploration focused game based on the world invented by the famous author H.P. Lovecraft.
Studio Fizbin is an Independent Games Studio located in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Sebastian Mittag, Alexander Pieper and Mareike Ottrand founded Studio Fizbin in spring 2011. They strongly focus on story-based games & apps with exciting, original and unique characters, worlds and tales.
Additionally to their own game projects like the award-winning adventure "The Inner World" Studio Fizbin works for hire on interactive projects. For example they made all the apps for the famous cartoon "Tom & the slice of bread with strawberry jam and honey". In other projects Fizbin allows children to stage their own opera, or they even build a digital game table for a museum. In August 2014 Studio Fizbin became a member of the G.A.M.E.-federation.
