Hello comrade, and welcome to team programming. We from team programming are working on the realisation of mechanics of Hiraeth. Everything you see moving, interact with or destroy has been made possible by us. We are the masters of the Unity Asset store (for testing purposes of course) and don’t hesitate to push directly to master. We work in two teams, one of which is specialised in Character mechanics and one which is specialised in world interaction & AI (Smart Bleddyns and stuff). We gain our daily doses of productivity by drinking coffee and posting memes. So if you are playing Hiraeth and enjoy it to it fullest, please remember us and think by yourself those guys did an amazing job. If you want to know more about this group of intellectuals, please look below.




Hi, I’m Robin. I’m 21 years old and one of the programmings leads for Hiraeth. I don’t have an interesting Bio, so here are some fun facts about me: I’m a lazy developer and therefore want to automate everything. My own music library currently consists of 22.000 dutch party songs. I love some good architecture discussions.

A good life motto of mine is: “Live fast, die young” 😉.




I am Leroy Hermans I am a 24 year old developer studying at the “Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen”. When I saw that the GAME minor was available I jumped to sign up. I think the minor provides a cool mix between software development and art. This is something you rarely see during your studies. A great opportunity to build amazing things! In this case a Game. Ever since I was little I played video games they make me feel safe and at home, so the opportunity to build one? I am not going to let that pass!


Project Manager

I study Software Development and after the minor, I will graduate. In the game, I will primarily focus on managing the project and scripting the game.

Automate it. Automate everything!


ANimations & movement

My name is Floris Kramer. I am 21 years old and currently busy with my third year on the HAN becoming a professional in Software Development. I will mainly be working on player animations and player movement for Hireath.



I’m Co Ha. The first thing that probably comes your mind after reading my name is. Is his full name that short? Yes it is, so is this bio. I’m a 22 year old Vietnamese asian that is born in the Netherlands and can’t even make spring rolls. Instead of spending my precious time on learning how to make roll spring rolls. I’m currently programming the player mechanics and ability for Hireath during my study as Software Development at the Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen.



Hi, I’m Davey Jochems. I’m 24 years old, I study Software Development at the HAN and work as a programmer for Hiraeth. I will be working on the world interactions and the AI. (This AI won’t take over the world, I promise) Fun facts: I can’t function properly without music and/or caffeine. I’m always up for a game of Guitar Hero.


World immersion

I’m Maurice and I’m 25 years old. I live in Arnhem since 2 years, originally I’m from a little town called Vorden. In the project I fulfil the roll of programmer for world interactions. At the HAN I study computing science with embedded software as specialization. I’m a fourth year student now and after game project I will start with my thesis.  A fun personal fact about my life is that I recently got two new cats (Puck and Timon).


World interactions & AI

I’m a 22 year old student at the “Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen”. There I study software development where I’m currently taking part in the HAN’s “Game” minor. I grew up playing lots of video games and I knew I’d want to make my own game some day. This minor just happened to provide the perfect opportunity to get started with that. During this project I’ll mostly be working on AI and world interactions. I don’t have much to say about it, so I’ll leave it at that.


Player mechanics & movement

Hi, I’m Marijn Besseling. I’m a Software Development student at the HAN but right now I’m a programmer and integration lead at Studio Hiraeth. I will mainly be working on the player mechanics and movement in the game. And I will make sure that the work of the different teams is properly integrated into the game. Add me on Switch 😉 SW-5807-7126-1601


World interactions & AI

Hello all, My name is Matt Miller and I’m participating in the Game Minor at HAN as an AI and world interaction developer for Hiraeth. I am an exchange student here this semester originally from Minnesota, U.S.A. I’ve been very passionate about video games my whole life so I’m looking forward helping make Hiraeth the best it can be and I’m excited to see the final product!



My name is Rick Bieze, I'm from Stadskanaal, Groningen, The Netherlands. I study Software Engineering at the Stenden University (Emmen). I moved to Arnhem to follow the Game minor course. Since I've spent a lot of time playing games, I thought it would be interesting to learn how to actually make a game and how games are designed and programmed.


Player mechanics & abilities

Hi I’m Tim Godschalck I’m 23 years old. I’m a Software Development student at the HAN but right now I’m a programmer at Studio Hiraeth. I will mainly be working on the player mechanics and abilities in the game. Fun fact about me, I like pizza.



Hi my name is Mathijs Groothuis, i’m 21 years old and hoping to become a professional Software Developer once I’m done studying. I choose the minor GAME since I love to play games and always wanted to make one myself. This minor enabled me to do so and I’m glad I’ll be working on such an amazing game. During the development of Hiraeth I’ll be (mostly) working on the Artificial Intelligence (AI) of the enemies and companions in the game and the world interactions.



Yuri Vannisselroij I’m 22, originally born in the Philippines, yet I don’t speak the language. Anyway, I was supposed to serve my internship, but the HAN didn’t agree with the company I choose, so I ended up doing this minor and I’m glad that happened :).


Shading & techniques

My name is René van Eendenburg, 25 years old. I’m part of the programming team. In this team I will specialize in shading techniques and special effects. A fun fact: I like long romantic walks on the beach. I dislike sand, walking, distances and romance.
