About

Hi there! I’m Alonso, an engineering design and computer science student from Chile. I’m one of the co-founders of Smarto Club where we’re currently working on Teacup, a wholesome narrative adventure game about a tea loving frog.

I lead my university’s game development club and have organized multiple activities like workshops, talks and game jams, including the biggest Global Game Jam site in the country.

In my spare time, I enjoy developing short and sweet web games and tinkering with electronics like Arduino and alternative controllers. Some of my favorite gaming experiences have been the desolate but beautiful world of Shadow of the Colossus, the intense dual-screen action of The World Ends With You, the thoughtful puzzles and narrative of Braid and the warm and cozy location and characters of A Short Hike.

In 2020, I was selected as a recipient for the International Game Developer’s Association Scholars program.
