Daniel Nascimento

Canada,  Burnaby Centre for Digital Media,  Masters of Digital Media,  March 16, 2016
I started as an Artist studying 3D Animation & Visual Effects in Vancouver Film School, upon graduating I started to learn more on my free time about Game Development, putting my 3D Artist skills towards making games. I started learning programming while using the Unreal Development Kit, eventually I moved on to Unity. Last year I started to pursue a masters degree in Digital Media at the Centre for Digital Media. So far I have made about 20 games between game jams, school projects and projects made on my free time.
I'm currently working on a long-term project called Rocket Fist, which I intend to release in 2016 as my first commercial release.
