Description

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

History

Early Days

Venturelli’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 list (it actually got as far as #3).

New Adventures

After Critical Studio’s closure, Venturelli has created Rogue Snail and worked as a game designer on games such as Chroma Squad (freelancing for Behold Studios) and Star Vikings (the first game to be released under the new snail brand). In 2013 he 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 2014. Mark is currently working on finishing Chroma Squad and Star Vikings, and has just launched the open-source shooter Relic Hunters Zero.
