TESTIMONIALS

LARA ARTEMIEFF

LARA ARTEMIEFF QA & LOCALISATION MANAGER – ARKALIS INTERACTIVE

It’s very rare to find people that are as passionate about their jobs as Renaud. His deep interest for game design and everything even remotely related to it pushes him to constantly explore new ideas and new technologies. He is a great team player and his vision allows him to deliver results that exceed expectations. Still, I believe Renaud’s greatest strengths are his creativity and storytelling. I am convinced that we haven’t heard the last of him and that in the future he will be developing several of his personal game concepts. When that happens I would love be the first in line to play them.
