Description

Brazilian game designer Mark Venturelli is Rogue Snail, a one-man studio that includes several collaborators from around the world. Mark is responsible for co-founding Critical Studio, creating charity event Super BR Jam, and designing games such as Chroma Squad, Relic Hunters Zero, Dungeonland and Star Vikings.

History

Early history

Mark’s first real shot at this weird “professional game development” thing was Dungeonland. Together with 4 friends he founded Critical Studio, and 3 years later the game was being released on Steam. It was far from perfect (no first game ever is, right?), but it was a huge deal for the Brazilian game’s industry. To date, it’s still the only Brazilian game to ever make it into Steam’s Top 10 best-selling list (it actually got as far as #3).

After that

After Critical Studio’s closure, Mark has created Rogue Snail and worked as a game designer on games such as Chroma Squad (freelancing for Behold Studios) and Relic Hunters Zero (released as a free an open source game on Steam in 2015). In 2013 Mark also created the charity event Super BR Jam, which got together over 25 studios from Brazil and the world to raise funds for a school for poor children in Rio. The event should come back for a second edition in 2017. Mark is currently working on finishing Star Vikings for a Summer-2016 release, and is already cooking a mysterious unannounced game...
