Professional games

Tin & Kuna (Black River Studios, 2020)

Tin & Kuna is a 3D puzzle platformer; I worked as a developer during the entire project, from the early prototypes to the final adjustments, implementing various subsystems for all platforms.

The game was published by Aksys Games and it is available on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Conflict 0: Shattered (Black River Studios, 2018)

You can download it on Microsoft Store, and more information is available at its official page.


Collective and Jam games

RGBlues (PxlSquad, 2017)

RGBlues is a mobile musical puzzle game which was initially developed for the Global Game Jam 2017, which theme was "waves", and some time later improved and launched for Android platforms. I was the sole programmer and one of the game designers for the jam and the published version.

You can download it on Google Play and also see the initial version submitted to the Global Game Jam 2017 (January 20th - 22th) here. I've written a blog post about one of its aspects: How RGBlues level editor was designed.


Kuarup (PxlSquad, 2017)

Kuarup is a mobile puzzle game which was initially developed for the Global Game Jam 2016, which theme was "ritual", and in 2017 improved and launched for Android platforms. I worked as a developer and game designer for the jam and the published version.

You can download it on Google Play and also see the initial version submitted to the Global Game Jam 2016 (January 29th - 31th) here.


Tomato Hunter (PxlSquad, 2016)

Tomato Hunter is a retro-inspired action game made for the GBJam 5 (October 1st-10th, 2016), and I was the programmer and story writer. Below is a snippet of the story:

Without tomatoes, there is no ketchup. And french fries are pointless without ketchup. After years of searching for tomatoes and eating tasteless fries, Tomato Hunter finally found the legendary lab that seems to have tomatoes.

You can see more information and also play it online on itch.io. I've written a post-mortem for it (in Portuguese).


Tiny Terror (PxlSquad, 2018)

Tiny Terror is a retro-inspired action game made for the GBJam 6 (August 18th-27th, 2018), and I worked as the programmer and story writer. In the game you control a necromancer who must battle hordes of soldiers using magic spells and raising an army of skeletons.

The Old Tomorrow (PxlSquad, 2020)

The Old Tomorrow is an action game which was developer for the Global Game Jam 2020, which theme was "repair". I participated with my cousin and we did the game design and the narrative, with the code and most of the art done by me. It's a very short game where you must travel on your home on wheels to the east, repairing it along the way.


Personal games

Infinite Space (personal, 2020)

Infinite Space is a space shooter game with a very simple and short gameplay, made mostly to learn about Godot Engine and GDScript. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, and I'm looking forward to making more small projects or take part on  game jams using this engine.

This game is based on a previous version done in the PICO-8 fantasy console, based on this tutorial. The code, graphics and audio were all done by myself inside PICO-8; it's a very simple game, with little polish, but it was a fun experiment on making a game with limited resources. You can try it out below!
