History

Early history

Before developing games and moving to New York Leandro lived in Brazil, where graduated from the University of Sao Paulo (USP) with a BS degree in Economics. After deciding to take his childhood dream seriously, Leandro moved to New York to study game design at the New York Film Academy before being accepted as a MFA candidate at the NYU Game Center in 2013.

After that

Leandro studied under many renowned designers and scholars such as Bennett Foddy, Eric Zimmerman and Clara Fernandez-Vara. He graduated from the NYU Game Center in 2015 with a MFA in Game Design degree, and now makes games focusing on player-to-player interaction in local environments. His first major release will be Ninja Tag, coming in 2015 for PC and Mac.
