Game Designer



Steve Gutierrez



Work collaboratively to make interesting and fun experiences that will stick with players long after they put down the game.





Communication: Collaborated with engineers to deliver a fulfilling experience for players. Maintained contact with a remote art team to allow rapid improvement of assets and ensure functionality. 


Rapid Implementation: Worked closely with the engineering to implement new technology into the development pipeline. Have worked on several game jam submissions with a small team and had to quickly adapt to a theme to lead the team to reach our goal.


Dedication: Diligent and committed to attaining goals regardless of challenges. While working full-time and going to school, I participated in several game jams to continue to develop my game creation skills.

Stood by team through difficult release schedules making sure to give every team the resources they needed no matter what, even if there were actions needed outside of the normal QA process.
