Description

2Awesome Studio is a Dutch independent game development studio composed of David Jimenez and Alejandro Santiago. Adding awesomeness to reality by developing video games with new and addictive mechanics.

History

Early history David Jimenez and Alejandro Santiago met back in 2006 here in the Netherlands despite being both originally from Barcelona (Spain). While working full time jobs at the European Space Agency as engineers, they started dreaming about developing videogames in their spare time. This was an old childhood dream for both, and over the years to follow they started developing them separately at first, while coursing different videogames related studies on top of their engineering degrees and full time jobs. David developed Castle Walk, Tyrian Reborn and Super Stick Fighter 2 Turbo and took a special interest in game design with a strong focus on gameplay programming. Alejandro developed UltraMagic Balloons Target, AeonSpace fighters and UOC Race amongst others.

Team Up Back in 2009 David and Alejandro teamed up and started sharing their passion about videogames development. Later on they started working on Dimension Jumper an Xbox Live Indie Game using XNA that never made it to market but that served as a stepping stone and background for the future. On January 2013, David and Alejandro started working together as 2Awesome Studio (even if not setup as a company at that time) and moved from XNA to Unity development.

Recent Activities On January 2014, 2Awesome Studio participated to the Global Game Jam in Amsterdam where they collaborated with a group of artists and a musician and they developed a 2D platformer titled Kevin. After the Game Jam, some of the team members decided to push forward for 2 or 3 months in order to get a more polished demo (Brushed Away). In parallel, 2Awesome Studio had been developing Dimension Drive (a follow up of Dimension Jumper). Both Dimension Drive and Brushed Away were praised by the audience when they were showcased at Indievelopment 2014 in Utrecht. As a result, 2Awesome Studio was invited to showcase their games at Indie-Gameleon in Groningen and give a lecture on the process "From Game Jam to Actual Game". 2Awesome Studio now works on Energy Rush an upcoming 2D racing platformer for tablets, mobile, PC and Mac (other platforms under study) based on the experience from Brushed Away. 2Awesome keeps developing Dimension Drive in parallel. David and Alejandro still work full time jobs at the space sector while they develop video games at 2Awesome Studio in their spare time and continue with their plan to add awesomeness to the real world.
