A project manager with 12 years of experience under his belt, Rafał made his chops in every aspect of the business, from planning, through development up till successful premieres.
A creator of both humble Android games (albeit with 0,5 mln downloads on some of them!) and full, Steam-worthy, releases (“Mooch”).
His favorite part of the inventive process is drafting and designing new games and mechanics – he still has over 80 that are yet to see the light of day! In his free time he plays chess, PC games, NES and GBA emulators, board- and role-playing games.
On weekends he runs around with an air-soft gun.
An agile manager, with extensive experience in software development projects, both for private sector and for public administration.
Physicist by heart, he has worked on incredibly interesting topics of high pressure material research (super-hard ceramics), as well as solid state optics (blue laser diodes).
His post-academic career brought him into computer security and software development areas.
Now he fulfills his dream of combining two worlds – interesting scientific research and building useful software. His goal is to make a dent in the universe and make the world a better place.
Privately – sailing the high seas, climbing, meadmaking, fencing, and dozens of other bizzare activities
Like the Architect, but red-headed
An image-processing specialist during his college years, he quickly turned his attention to gamedev.
Focusing his attention mostly on AI, he gained recognition for his work in RTS games (such as the multiplayer bots for Ancestors Legacy) and programming the traffic for mobile simulation games such as: Truck Simulator PRO 2, Bus Simulator PRO 2, BUS Simulator PRO 2017, Construction Simulator PRO 2017.

Since then, he’s been interested in how games (and other programs) are made.
The interest grew and here he is – with Master and Doctorate degrees in Computer Science.
