Welcome to our blog! My name is Gabby, CEO and Co-Founder of Altitude. Our startup is a mobile game studio composed of five co-founders that have been part of the Southeast Asian game development scene over the last decade. Our mission is to create original IP through midcore mobile games.
I first worked with Luna (our Creative Director) and Marc (our Engineering Director) on the first Filipino-made game at Anino Entertainment back in 2003. We continued to work together in Boomzap Entertainment, which is arguably the best casual game studio in the region. While at Boomzap, we learned a lot about creating and shipping games, creating valuable IP, and building a world-class development team. Now we’re very proud to be co-founders and partners in our own venture.
Meanwhile, Paul Gadi (Technical Director) and Chester Ocampo (Art Director) first worked together at ePLDT Contentdev, creating mobile games for Symbian phones. Since then, Paul has held both CTO or Lead Producer positions at various studios such as Anino Mobile, Gameloft Philippines, and Inkstone. Chester Ocampo was an Art Director at Imaginary Friends Studios in Singapore, and has been working as a freelance art director and illustrator for the past five years for some of the best game and comic book companies in the world. You can enjoy more of his illustrations at his DeviantArt page.
We’ve now volted in as one team and are currently neck deep in prototyping our first game. We’ll be revealing more in the coming weeks, so please follow us on Twitter @altitude_games, Facebook, and this blog to learn more about our upcoming game!
