Eduardo started on Game Design very soon. Coming from a family of psychologists, he always had a deep interest in human behavior or exactly why we do what we do. Alongside with his passion for gaming, he grew making homebrew or heavily-customized tabletop games, then later learning to code in order to show the world his prototypes and participating in all kinds of local game jams or similar activities.
After his Computer Sciences Degree and Master's Degree in Game Design, he embarked in his first professional adventure in the industry, where new exciting projects and challenges would come one after other.

LEAD GAME DESIGNER · DECA GAMES (germany/international)
Managing the Design team at DECA Games, Eduardo helps bring a solid Design process and guidance to all aspects involved in Game Design. He works closely with Product Owner and the rest of the leads, and is heavily involved in the game's vision while keeping the company strategic and business goals.
Eduardo worked in several titles with DECA Games, but in special, he's entrusted with the Design-side vision of Realm of the Mad God.
This unique pixel-art classic RPG Bullet Hell/MMO hybrid has been active for 10 years, and carries a lot of challenges with it. DECA has managed to make a huge success of it keeping the playerbase with the highest growing in the entire game's history, alongside a remarkably healthy number of daily active users, having being celebrated by analytics platforms in several occassions in the recent history of the game.
Managing player experience, the modernization of old systems to meet today's players' standards, and business necessities of an ever-growing (sometimes explosive!) game like this has proven as challenging as exciting for Eduardo, who likes to deal with both the high-level design approach needed for strategic decissions as much as guiding his team and accompany them in the low-level implementation details and processes.
