About the Speaker
Game Design | Art | Indie | Industry
Videogames have been a big part of my life. I have been working in or around videogames in one way or another since 1999. In 2006 I co-founded and co-managed Seed Studios where we produced several games including Toy Shop Tycoon and Aquatic Tales for the Nintendo DS. In 2011, Under Siege for the PlayStation3 was created. Under Siege was published in more than 60 countries in six different languages and was awarded the ZON Grand Prize Award, the ZON Multimedia Award and the Exame Informática Best Software of 2011. In 2013 I directed, wrote and co-produced Murder in the Hotel Lisbon for Windows, Mac and Linux for my newly created company, Nerd Monkeys. In 2015 we re-launched it for iOS and Android devices. Since 2014 I have also been working with Science4You to create several educational videogames like Micro Dinos and Sparks – Mega Quiz. I am currently working on my next videogame in my office of Nerd Monkeys located inside “The Lisbon Studio”.
