About

I’m a French independent game designer and interactive artist based in Paris. I mix electronic components like Arduino sensors, arcade controllers or Raspberry Pi with crafting material such as wood, plastic, fabrics, etc… to make alternative controllers, playful installations and experimental video games.

I like to explore new ways to play, gather people and express oneself by hijacking game mechanics or practicing meaningful game design.

Over the past few years, I also worked on many other video games and prototypes in solo or on collaborative projects. You can find most of these games at gamaelstrom.itch.io

I’m always looking for new opportunities so don’t hesitate to contact me for jobs, workshops, exhibitions, festivals or other events.
