I’m the cofounder and creative director at Urustar, a small game design team based in Genova, Italia. I love games, in every possible form, from digital games, to board games, to street games.
I’m pretty convinced that games are the defining medium of this century, and I love to experiment with them. I try to apply game design to other human activities, because games are great at explaining, teaching and describing things. I try to work on my games focusing on the emotions I want people to feel, and crafting game mechanics from them.
Besides designing and developing games, I teach game design. I have held several game design classes (at IED and IULM in Italy) and I hold one-day game design workshops for clients like Digital Accademia. I see myself as a game evangelist, and I try to explain to my clients what games are and how they should use them effectively.
