Hi, I’m Enric (he/him), a Brazilian game maker, researcher and educator. I’m currently a PhD candidate at Concordia University in Tiohtià:ke (Montréal, Québec, Canada).
My work involves alternative game controllers, play and politics, as well as studying game making and design as a critical practice. I make experimental games which have been exhibited at major festivals, industry events and art exhibitions. I’ve worked as a university lecturer in Brazil, Canada and the USA, teaching courses about game development, design, and analysis. I’m also interested in experimental arcades, music, crafts, and public play. I’ve also been involved with organizing independent and alternative games events in Brazil and Canada.
