My name is Marlene Johansen. I was born and raised in Kolding, Denmark and have always been
a nerd interested in computers and computer games. I got my first computer at the age of 3. (It was a commodore 64 btw.) For as long as I can remember I've loved to doodle and color, but it wasn't before I reached the age of 16 I got interested in developing my skills. At 17 I got introduced to Photoshop and it got my full interest. This was the perfect media for me to work with since I'm too impatient with real paint.
The Commodora 64 was a big part of my childhood. In the 90's I got the Amiga 600, but not long after, the first PC landed in our home. It came with some games included. One of them was Kings Quest VII which is a point and click adventure game. I quickly discovered that I loved to immerse myself in adventure games and figuring them out.
Fast forward to 2005, where I was working in the bakery department of a lokal supermarket. While at work an idea popped into my head. I wanted to create my own adventure games! And when I got home I started creating background graphics and coming up with a story for my game.
In 2006 I met my boyfriend and he helped me finish my game project. He was eager to explore the mobile game development area, but he lacked skills in the graphics department. So we teamed up and "LuBlu Entertainment" was formed.
In 2009 my first adventure game was finally released with the title "Fading Shades". It can be downloaded here if you're curious.
In 2010 I got an idea for my next adventure game, and I managed to create a bunch of sketches and scribbles until 2011 when I had to put the game into hibernation due to us becoming parents :-)
Up until then, LuBlu Entertainment managed to create several games for the mobile platform. Some of the titles can be found here (in danish). "Pirate Diamonds" is another game we created. It can be found here.
In 2018 LuBlu Entertainments official website lublu.dk turned into LuBlu Media when I quit my day job and decided to become self-employed. It now shows what I've been doing with my time instead of drawing :-)
