ABOUT US

We are Planetfall Studios, an indie game company founded in 2018 and based on Lisbon, Portugal. We are passionate about games (Yes, really!), we love playing them and we absolutely love making them. While we believe games have a lot to say, we also believe it’s important to not lose sight of what they were meant to be in the first place: Fun. So we aim to make great, quality games who are above all, fun to play.

Feel free to browse around and get to know us better. This is our game company, there are many like it, but this one is ours.

Andreas grew up in southern Brazil, where he graduated in History on the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, with the initial idea of working as a teacher and investigator before deciding to, instead, pursue his childhood dream of creating games. He moved to Portugal where he met the rest of the Planetfall team and eventually co-founded the company. Passionate about writing stories and creating worlds, when not working on awesome games, he can be found behind the Dungeon-Master’s screen for a D&D or GURPS game, where he has been for the last 10 years.

After working in several jobs since he was 19 years old, Bruno grew tired of working for others and started chasing his dream of being a 3D artist, attending Lusófona University where he met two guys that later became his friends, who along with another individual, co-founded Planetfall Studios. The dream now stars to turn into reality, it’s never too late to change the course of life.

FAVORITE GAMES

Felipe grew up in 3 different cities – and each one in a different region – in Brazil. Since his youth, he felt a connection to the nerd underworld: Comics, board games, sci-fi and medieval (fantasy or otherwise) cartoons and books. The full conversion happened with both RPGs and video games; from that point on, he would never turn back. A Major in business administration opened the doors to the gaming industry – first at a small garage company in 2015, and now at Planetfall Studios in 2018. He joined the company after being invited by Andreas (a long-time friend and usually the DM in their RPG groups); it was one of the most important (and best) decisions he took in his life.

Fernando was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. At age five he was gifted a Nintendo 64 where the marvels of playing video games unfolded before him. It wasn’t long until he transformed that fascination in something more practical and started programming in his teens, doing small games and scripts as a part-time. He recently graduated in Video Games & App Development from Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, soon after, with the rest of Planetfall’s team, started working on their first game, Retro Defense. Fernando is passionate about game systems and what’s needed to bring them to life.
