Jordi Sola

Chief Technology Officer

As well as being our CTO, Jordi is also Co-founder and CEO of Cubus Games in Barcelona, responsible for  a number of diverse digital titles including the Pocket Gamer award-winners Heavy Metal Thunder, Sol Invictus, The Frankenstein Wars, Necklace of Skulls and Deadman Diaries.

 

Jordi is interested in technical development innovations around user-decision-led narrative across large storyworlds; with a focus on mainstream player expectations versus accessibility for non-mainstream and under-represented gaming audiences.
