Greetings from Spain! Im Yeray, a Game and Level Designer that has worked on Project Katharsis (Steam), Chess Mess ( and Tuscany Villa (iOS and Android).

 Im fascinated by how games can manipulate our decision making through the design tool known as Emotional engagement. This phenomenon is very commonly used in Disempowering fantasies, which are now most popular than ever thanks to the different platforms and players who seek new and special experiences in their games.[email protected] -
