Attilio Carotenuto

Hello! I'm Attilio, and I design, develop, collect and play videogames.

I'm the owner of Himeki Games, an indie studio with a focus on hardcore, premium games, ranging from old-school arcade games to first person 3D VR experiences

I'm self-trained. I always knew I wanted to make games, so I started studying programming and design on my own very early, buying dozens of books and making lots of prototypes.

I began writing tutorials and articles to help people with my same passion, and soon I got my first contract jobs. After about 2 years freelancing, I moved to London and at 22 I joined EA Maxis in their Playfish studio. After that, I worked at King and Space Ape Games, both in London.

Apart from making games, I'm also passionate about teaching people about game dev, writing tutorials on websites such as BinPress, and working with publishers such as Packt on books and tutorial series.
