Leroy is a 2nd year Bachelor’s student enrolled in the Game Design & Development programme at Hanze University of Applied Science, Groningen.

Super Mario Maker is a game where players can create their own levels. The competition’s judges described Leroy’s work as follows: "Good game levels should compliment the law of Design (easy to learn, but difficult to master). Leroy showed creativity to the judges through the use of entertaining puzzles created for an environment in which the player is and what is expected of the player was always clear."

Nintendo’s competition took place from September to December 2015, in cooperation with Hanze UAS, Groningen.
