YOU FINALLY FOUND ME.
My name is Mattia Traverso and I am an award winning Product Manager and Creative Director with 13 years of experience in the Game Industry.
I have led creative teams of up to 50 people and released games on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android.
I strive for direction that is coherent, practical and inspiring. With just a tad of chaos!
THINGS WORTH A LOOK AT
Enotria is an ambitious AA project, trying to combine the dark fantasy of a Souls-like with the Vibrant Colors & History of 15th century Italian Folklore.
LAST DAY OF JUNE
Last Day of June is an experimental narrative-driven game about grief, made in collaboration with Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree fame.
Secret Oops is an experimental multiplayer AR game, available exclusively on Apple Arcade.
FRU is an experimental Kinect game, and the highest rated Xbox exclusive of 2016.
ONE AND ONE STORY
My very first game. I like to think of it as a digital poem, using game mechanics to express a story about love.
Besides B2C products, I have been lucky enough to work for clients such as Disney, IBM, Miniclip, Kongregate, Armor Games, and more.
TELL ME SOMETHING PERSONAL
I worked as a farmer in Japan
I am vegetarian
I play guitar (and drums!)
I don't take myself seriously

"The touch of emotions that turns an interesting set of mechanics into a unique experience, a product for brainy designers into one for humans with feelings, a game for the sake of itself into a game for the sake of the people who play it - that's Mattia's touch."
