Renaud van Strydonck, Game Designer

About Me

Hi, I’m Renaud, and I’m a freelance game designer.

With over 10 years of experience in the industry, I have lead design projects for Warner Brothers, Nintendo, LEGO, Bandai Namco, Kiloo and MGM as well as on a number of original projects for both small and large studios across Europe.

While my passion is for meaningful games with social impact and emotional gameplay, I have extensive experience designing games as a service, and taking a product from the concept stage through pitching, prototyping and production.

I am currently taking on contract and freelance work, and can be contacted via email, twitter or the contact form below.
