Adrian Gimate-Welsh's Blog

 

CEO and Founder of TagWizz, Adrian Gimate-Welsh is a Mexican & French engineer and videogame veteran with 25 years experience in the digital services space. Sensing the imminent appeal of video games, he began his career at Ubisoft. He helped the company grow exponentially, creating its much needed groupware tools and methodology processes from scratch. Joining Ubisoft's new mobile game startup Gameloft, he then participated in the development of some of the world's first mobile games and assistance teams. 

In 2005, he moved to Baja California, Mexico - a strategic location that helped Gameloft become the undisputed leader in the Java/Brew mobile game battle. In New York, he coordinated world-wide Gameloft’s Android production. His teams were also responsible for the world's first iPhone and native Android games. 

Seeking new challenges, Adrian moved back to Mexico City. Today, he operates and owns his company TagWizz - grown to become the largest video game outsourcing company in the country.

Parallel computing makes use of multithreading, a hardware feature of CPUs (computer processing units) and GPUs (graphic processing units) that allows the OS (operating system) to send multiple self-contained sequences of instructions.

We can’t deny the simple fact that many videogames are created by artistic minded people, with artistic drives, and a desire to offer aesthetic works for contemplation rather than competition.

Any QA testing team needs not only to take the front camera notch into consideration when testing, but it also needs a wide range of cell phone models because slight changes between them make a whole lot of difference for any, if not all, mobile games.

The difference between pre-rendered cinematics and real-time graphics has made modern computers’ software and hardware capacities totally surpass the need for pre-rendering.


When a videogame first enters the Quality Assurance (QA) phase, many things can happen. Every game is different and unique in terms of programming, and this is the first challenge any QA team faces: the unpredictable nature of testing.


When drafting a video game’s visual proposal, the references are the starting point to guide concept artists in charge of bringing that aesthetical proposal to life. References are visual cues taken from many sources, like real places and people.
