Hello, my name is René and I am a Game Developer, Programmer, Producer and Actor based in Rio de Janeiro. I work with games since 2015. And published my first game in 2016.
Currently I'm a Developer at Arcolabs, where I can also explore producing and managing the games I'm working on.
I started creating games when I was a child, making boardgames to play with friends.
After choosing game dev as a profession I started studying programming by myself with rpgmaker scripting, python scripts and Unity 4 games clones projects. With this I got some experience before ingressing at UFRRJ to study Computer Science. There I've gained even more programming experience, but less game developing experience that I wanted. Before I could realize I started looking for a internship in game dev and couldn't find none. So I became a Freelancer Game Developer.
In my second year at UFRRJ I heard about IFRJ and their new Digital Games Degreee and in my third year I dropped Computer Science to study Digital Games.
I enrolled at IFRJ in 2017, and that same year I co-founded a startup called Blue Hill with a friend. With it we were invited to expose our games in a few events, being Game XP, that occurred during the Rock in Rio 2017, the bigger of them.
In 2018, for personal reasons I had to leave Blue Hill, and with that I started focusing on other projects. And now I'm projecting a new startup with a few projects of mine, and I plan to bring to life a few more projects until the end of this year.
Currently I'm still a freelancer developer on my spare time. And I'm also working on personal projects such as games, unity extensions, websites, mobile apps.
