This page is brought to you by Samuel Sousa, an "hermit" creating games and editorial cartoons from beyond the mountains. All content provided here comes from his "jack of all trades" artsy hands. He tries to keep this corner of the internet monthly updated with significant content which can sometimes prove to be kind of difficult.

It all begin way back when he was taught how to create Comics. Over 300 pages later, the path led to Painting and Rock Music as a drummer for smackthepone. Became mostly known for always having a project up his sleeve. Obtained a Licentiate Degree in Game Design. Time passed and the knowledge collected from all those years has opened the pandora box of game development. Having participated in a handful of game projects for PC and Mobile, after Tone Marreta, focus is now on "A 2D Retro Shoot'em Up".

Creation fun aside, he enjoys friendship, nature and writing about himself in third person, from time to time :)
