Meet The Team – Rafael Morais

Rafael

Name: Rafael Morais

Role: 3D Artist/VFX Artist

About: Back in 2006 I joined a few Modders to do some props for a Half-Life 2 MOD, this was my very first contact with the game industry, I was so mesmerized by how a few tweaks in a box could transform that primitive shape into a creature, vehicle, character or anything else you can imagine. I got my first job in the game industry when I was 20 as a Junior Artist, little did I know how hard it is to make a game, and how much effort it is required. I have participated as a game artist in several project as a 3D artist and VFX artist, I’ve done Space MMO, platform games, third person shooters and adventure games. In the last few years I helped on the development of 2 brazilian indie titles that i’m super proud, Aritana and Harpy’s Feather and Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly. I hope to keep doing game art for as long as I can.

What’s your favorite thing about GalaCollider?:
GalaCollider will bring a very unique new genre, mixing some of card game and deck build with turn based real time strategy. I can see myself spending some nice amount of hours only planning my decks and strategies. Also, the Sci-Fi theme totally grabs my attention, no matter if it is a game, movie, book or music.

What inspires you?:
Good Art. Music, Books, paintings, games. Good art inspires me.

What is your current gaming obsession?
Have you heard about Exanima? What about Chroma Squad? Technobabylon? Well I’m totally addicted to those new games. Exanima is an unique physics based game with an amazing combat system. Chroma Squad is a turn based strategy game where you are the manager of a Sentai Studio. Technobabylon is the newest adventure game by Wadjet Eye games, I’m a huge fan of their work.
