Introduction

I am an Italian Game Developer living in Scotland with a speciality in Game and Level Design. I firmly believe in the power of language when talking about games. Indeed, only by using a clear and consistent linguistic framework you will be able to understand Game Design for the ultimate purpose of creating better end-user experiences. I have also a Software Engineering background, I like to write, and I am Game Designer and member of the staff of the Design Oriented community.
