team-iso is a small game development group composed by six multidisciplinary students headquartered in Barcelona (Spain). It started as a work group in the Computer Science Faculty of Barcelona where we soon realized that we had the same interest: making awesome games.
Albert Vaca: He has loved computers as long as he can remember and, of course, he started to use them to play games. Surprisingly, the PC is not his favorite platform. It is, instead, the Nintendo 64 that got on his ninth birthday. When he was 14, he wanted to stop being a simple computer user and started learning to program. From then on, he mastered a lot of computer languages and is now a geek, Linux fan, hard-working coder. Nowadays, he studies with Roger, Victor and Pol and has a pleasant job at a small business in Barcelona. His favorite game genre is Zelda (“That’s a genre, right?”).
Víctor Guerrero: When Victor was a child he enjoyed solving puzzles. A lot. When he grew up and got a PC, he discovered graphic adventures. So it’s no surprise that he has a special interest for puzzle games that push your brain. He is a relative newb in the world of game development as recently discovered programming in college. That does not mean he lacks the drive and interest to learn more. He has also tinkered with 3D modeling (to help Roger). He believes game development combines multiple fields and requires open-minded people with the desire to exchange knowledge.
Roger Valldeperas: As a child Roger loved playing Gameboy, Megadrive and PlayStation games. At 15 he decided to learn 3D art and enjoyed modeling, rigging and animating models. Later he discovered that it was possible to use his 3D models in video games, so he learned some programming basics. He developed some games alone and worked as a 3D artist on other game projects before joining Team-iso. His favorite game genres are RTSes and platformers.
Pol Galeote: Pol spent his early childhood playing DOS games. Later, he got a NES and a Sega Genesis which made him realize that he loved video game music as much as the games. When he was 17 he started playing drums and joined a band. Now he is a programmer, makes sound effects and composes music for games. He never stops improving his composing and performing skills. His favorite game genres are RPGs and Metroidvanias.
Oriol Valldeperas: Oriol always loved illustration and has been drawing since he was a child. When was time to decide what degree to pursue, he chose graphic design because it included illustration. Internet and media also interested him so, after finishing his 4-year degree at Elisava School of Design (Barcelona, 2010), he specialized in web and media design sites, video and other digital formats. He’s enjoyed computer games since the times of the original GameBoy and the Megadrive. (Btw: He also did our awesome avatar pictures).
Marcos Cerezo: team-iso’s latest addition, Marcos is a talented and creative 2D artist. He studies at the Joso School of Visual Arts in Barcelona, and masters both hand-drawing and Photoshop. He first worked with team·iso in the creation of concept art and textures for the game IsoChronous.
