Hello!


I'm a Caribbean game developer in the process of founding his own society after some years in the mainstream industry. The Caribbean culture is unique and rich and offer opportunities to challenge value of game design. Designing for cultural niche honest to their identity is a tough learning process, full of trap and pitfall, especially when history as been so harsh on it. It really makes you questioning the cultural message behind some game mechanics and their relevance or their universality.


I'm also in a quest to strongly formalize video games. Some people argue video games don't have its Citizen Kane, but very few consider we still don't have our Sergueï Eisenstein. Sometimes I have those wacky idea but want those strong foundation to structure them we have in fine art or cinema. A lot of games are made with trial and error with streak of intuition, we still does not have the correct principles that encompass all experiences beyond the aesthetics of fun. This is what I'm chasing.
