He has since been involved in the development of several games for PC, mobile and console acting as an artist, programmer and in the last few years as game director and lead designer. By late 2017, he decided he was ready for the adventure of his lifetime and founded Gunstone Studios in January 2018 with the clear goal of becoming a bridge that connects businesses with the Digital Transformation going on in our societies.
A talented programmer with an unparalleled love for Unity 3D and Xamarin. Andrés is proud of his work, particularly having worked on our various global releases and seeing how his work touches people all around the globe.
A gamer at heart, although he can’t quite decide if he prefers playing or making them.
It doesn’t matter what you throw at him, he will be able to make it come true. He has spent the last few years of his career working in the Video Game industry and App Development as a programmer, both for local and international clients. Spends his free time learning Japanese and working in personal animation projects.
