My name is Sauli Saarimaa and I'm a 3D Artist, currently living in Tampere, Finland.
Creating things from my imagination has always been my passion. When I was kid, I used to draw and build a lot, back then we could not afford video games, so I made my own on paper. After a while I started making simple but fun maps for my friends, using map editors. These include several racing and strategy games. I soon realised, this was what I wanted to do with my life.
Following my passion to make games, I started mapping for Half-Life 2 in 2005, becoming more focused on making games as time passed. Inspired by various music composers and the books of Stephen King, I was able to take the skills i'd learned, to start developing Joutomaa in 2007.
