About me



My name is Mathias and I’m a game developer from Belgium with a passion for gaming and everything related to it. I have a degree in Game Development acquired from DAE (magna cum laude).

Before I started Digital Arts and Entertainment, I started studying Computer Science at the university in Leuven, however after succesfully completing the first year of the course I wanted to do something more hands on. Even though I learned a lot from the more theorethical approach at university, I felt like DAE would be a better fit for me.

I started in the industry as a placement programmer at Sumo Digital, where I got hired as a junior programmer after three months. This placement was the final part to get my degree in game development from DAE. During this time I got to experience many aspects of the game development process, ranging from QA-support and implementing new gameplay features to creating tools for other team members to use.

Since a couple months into the COVID pandemic, I decided to move back home to Belgium and started working as a freelance network programmer, working for Sumo Digital and on personal projects!
