Alberto Santiago is a Unity game developer with 7+ years experience, having developed and self-released an indie game for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam. This project set out on technical endeavours that dived into asynchronous AI, adaptive bots, local and online multiplayer, console development, and variety of unique game mechanics that have never been tried before.

The journey was an attempt to unify both artistic and programming skillsets into one ambitious project.
As a 3D Generalist Alberto’s experience includes 12+ years of working in all facets of the animation industry, from modeller of both organic and rigid body shapes, texture/surfacing artist, physics simulations, VFX, rigging, and lighting.
