More than just a game - creating empathy with video games

Video games get more and more into our everyday lives and have become a widely accepted form of entertainment. We can explore new worlds in video games and best of all we can be in it. The interactivity allows new and creative possibilities, ready to be explored.

Catharina Bøhler is the CEO and co-founder of award-winning indie company Sarepta studio. She has been working for 8 years in the game industry, primarily within the fields of management and game design. Sarepta’s goal is to create emotionally impactful games. In 2018 they released “My Child Lebensborn”, a co-development between the Production company Teknopilot and Sarepta as a narrative-driven parent simulator telling true stories about children born of war.

In addition to her leadership role at Sarepta Studio, she is Chairman of the Board of Norway’s first game developer collective: Hamar Game Collective. Games are an impactful medium, Catharina Bøhler uses games to convey emotions and share personal experiences.
