About me

Hi, I'm Duarte, and I make games. I focus mostly on Design and Gameplay Programming in C#, trying to nail that elusive Game Feel that makes you sit at the edge of your seat making faces and shaking the controller about.

I have somewhat of a hard time explaining what kind of games I like because I like very select examples in very diverse genres and styles. The best explanation I could muster so far is that I like games with a lot of character, the ones you can feel cemented their own identity that conveys something very particular.

When I'm not making games, I'm either playing them, reading some books, or playing music.
