Trivia[edit | edit source]
I’m Jens Erik and I’m about 2 months away from my 3 year anniversary at Funcom! I was hired back in 2016 to be the new community manager on Conan Exiles. I’m still CMing Exiles, in addition to other games like Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, Conan Unconquered, Moons of Madness, and several other unannounced things. I keep up with things on social media and the forums, and I also host the weekly livestreams over on our streaming channels.
I’m from Norway and have been living here all my life.
I have been in the games industry for around 10 years. I started off in games journalism, working freelance for various websites and outlets, before transitioning over to working as a community manager. Funcom was actually my first job on this side of the industry and I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity they gave me, and continue to give me.
As for games, I enjoy a bit of everything, but I definitely lean more towards single-player experiences (which is kind of funny, considering I work for a company that used to be known for making MMORPGs). Some of my favorite games are RPGs, but I rarely have time to play them anymore, which is a shame, but I try to get in one or two here and there.
My interests definitely curve towards the geeky side of things. I read, watch movies, play games, browse maymays, and consume pop culture so I can make obscure references no one but me understands.
