Who’s This Klanger? An Interview with Weronika Niebieszczanska

Wednesday, September 13th

In today's “Who’s This Klanger?” we get to know QA star, Weronika! We talk about everything, from their enthusiasm about Seedlings, to their love of animals.

How did you find your way to Klang?

When I was 11 years old I moved with my family to Germany from Poland. After I finished my schooling here (fun fact I actually dropped out in the 11th grade) I worked at Regiocom in the IT support department. Long story short, it wasn’t my favorite job so I was looking for universities. While I was looking for universities that offered game design I stumbled upon an advertisement for a Junior QA position at Klang. I thought: Perfect, I know nothing but I am interested! This happened at about midnight and by five in the morning I had read up on Klang, drafted my CV and cover letter, and sent everything in. It was very exciting, and now here I am!

What is your favorite part of working in QA?

I mainly just love how many different things there are to be done. One day I will be testing a list of tags for every item in the game, the next day I will be testing a completely new system for the modular buildings. I always have something new to do, which is exciting. I never get bored!

What excites you most about SEED?

I’m really excited by the fact that it is a simulation of humanity. I’m really into games like this. I love the fact that the characters get a personality of their own. It’s not that the player creates the personality of the Seedlings like in other games. Seedlings develop their own personalities depending on what they do, and they genuinely start feeling more and more alive with every development. I have to say this is my favorite part about SEED.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I absolutely love animals and taking care of them. Right now I have some quail, which are so cute. I just built an aviary for them and I love seeing them happy. I also have quail eggs, which is a plus! Besides the quail, I also have some mice and this past week I got a hamster. My animals consume all of my time, money, and energy, and I couldn’t be happier. Seeing them comfortable in an environment that I’ve built for them is very healing for me.

What is your favorite game right now?

Right now it’s Cult of the Lamb and Don’t Starve Together. This is because they are doing a collaboration where you get some items from one game in the other game. I have hundreds of hours logged in both of them, so that’s just a plus on top of the fact that I love both games.

What is your favorite part about living in Berlin?

One of my favorite parts about Berlin is the amount of art that is everywhere. No matter where you go you are surrounded by art and creativity. Even if I just go down my street I can find amazing graffiti all around me (graffiti is one of my favorite kinds of art). It’s also really nice to see how Berlin develops and evolves. I love to see how the city changes.
