Martin’s first game was invented during a 7-month family road trip in the US, and it happened to win the “Family Game of the Year” award in Denmark, where he is a native. He co-invented his second game – Zoo Panic – with his 5-year old daughter, which won the “Children’s Game of the Year” award. With his company CAMP Games, Martin has been a full-time game inventor for 1½ years and has licensed 25 games during that period, including Flag Frenzy by Geotoys and Rise or Fall by FoxMind. Besides inventing games, Martin writes books, teaches MBA courses, and tries to travel as much as possible – especially in the U.S.
