ABOUT ME (1997)

Hey there, I'm Leandro Peres, and I'm not just a bunch of text โ€“ I'm a real person who's in tune with what people are saying. I've been fortunate to dive into the gaming industry for over 2 years as a Generalist Game Programmer, where I craft experiences that not only catch your eye but also engage your mind.

I've had the pleasure of contributing my skills at LabTIME/UFG in Brazil, where I developed games that made a positive impact in public schools. During my time at SOHNE, I played a pivotal role in successfully launching diverse games across various platforms.

Armed with a degree in Digital Games from Senac Goiรกs College and a background in Philosophy, I bring a unique perspective to the table. My philosophical insights empower me to think critically and tackle challenges head-on. I'm constantly excited to grasp fresh technologies, ensuring I stay up-to-date with the latest trends and breakthroughs in my ever-evolving field.

In a nutshell, I'm not just your typical game developer โ€“ I'm a versatile game enthusiast committed to conjuring up top-notch games that blend enjoyment with education. My toolkit is packed with a mix of skills and a wealth of experiences, all dedicated to creating games that genuinely resonate with players.

Project Managment Gameplay Programming

I had the opportunity to lead the development of this project: a beat-em-up game that was presented at a fair and played by attendees. In this role, I was responsible for programming the game mechanics, designing the levels, and ensuring that the game was fun and engaging for players of all skill levels.

One of the most rewarding aspects of this project was seeing the game in action at the fair, with attendees lining up to play and cheering each other on as they battled their way through the levels. It was a thrill to see how much fun people were having with the game, and it was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire development team.
