A Project Review will provide with in-depth analysis and expert opinion needed before any key decision. It goes as follows:
First, we identify your points of concern through an initial discussion.
Then, 3-5 days after reception of your documents, assets and build, you receive your report containing:
- A detailed review of your material
- Positive and negative points
- Identification of the main issues to address
- Recommendations on the course of action
Our closing discussion lets us clarify feedback and evaluate possible options together.

Alexandre was at our studio and gave us great feedback on our work process as well as our games. The insights we got from him are priceless. I would greatly recommend any studio or game designer to work with him.Camilo Gomez
Alex is one of the few designers I’ve met who is able to break down the elements that compose a game from the most basic of interactions all of the way to a complete experience. He provides a vocabulary for such elements to create a common language for designer communication, which is a tricky ordeal when designers come from all different backgrounds and learned their trade in all different manner. These tools allow him to dig to the core of many design problems and provide solutions. He is also French. That is a fact.Jasen Torres

Alex’s direction gave our team the tools we needed to design deep into uncharted territory. With the processes he helped us establish, we were able to effectively tackle a big, ambiguous project with confidence and understanding. Working with Alex not only helped us see our product vision with refreshing clarity, but left our team with a new set of powerful design tools for reliably and consistently achieving our vision in terms of gameplay – in short, it completely transformed the way we do design.Evan Yates
In the brief time I worked with Alex he taught me many things that allowed me to mature and grow as a designer. Primarily he taught me best practices from the top down that not only form strong creative visions, but empower even junior employees to contribute to said visions.Clint Tasker

Game whisperer indeed!
We were in need of a strong game designer to consult with us on a development project which had numerous unique challenges. I asked an old industry friend for a recommendation and she she gave me Alex’ name saying “you won’t need to talk to anyone else”.
Alex took the time to put thoughtful research into the background of the project and was very professional in his approach to working with us. He pushed the team to overcome some creative blocks we encountered and gave us valuable insights on how users might engage with our game. Everyone who worked with him on the project was very impressed and we would be excited to work with him again in the future.Jean-Guy Niquet
