About the Author

Matt Smith is a computing academic from Dublin, Ireland. In 1983 Matt started computer programming (on a ZX80) and for his 'O-level' computing certificate (aged 16) he submitted 2 games for his programming project work. In 1985 Matt wrote the lyrics, and was a member of the band that played (and sang, sorry about that by the way) the music on the B-side of the audio cassette carrying the computer game Confuzion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confuzion). On a succession of scholarships he managed to spend almost 10 years as a full time student, gaining BA (Hons), then MSc then PhD degrees in computing and artificial intelligence. He then became a full-time lecturer. Having previously lectured full-time at Winchester University and London's Middlesex University, since 2002 he has been at the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown in Dublin (http://www.itb.ie/) where he is he is now senior lecturer in computing. Some of his previous Irish-French student team games can be found and played at http://www.saintgermes.com (thanks for continuing to host these Guillem!). Matt was one of the two technical experts for a recent multimedia European project for language and cultural student work mobility (http://www.vocalproject.eu). He studies and teaches Taekwon-Do with his two children, having been awarded his first degree black belt in 2015 (he also runs his club's website at http://www.maynoothtkd.com/). He is trying to learn Irish, so he will understand the report cards from his children's Irish-speaking school. In occasional moments of free time he also tries to get better at playing the piano and classical guitar. Matt is a documentation author for the Fungus open source interactive storytelling plugin for Unity (http://www.fungusgames.com). Matt also maintains a step-by-step open source introduction to Unity 2D and 3D game programming on his public Github pages (see https://www.github.com/dr-matt-smith/gravity-guy2D). Matt's previous publications include a chapter in Serious Games and Edutainment Applications (Springer 2011, ISBN: 1447121600), and contributions and editing of several music education and artificial intelligence books. Chico Queiroz is a digital media designer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Chico started his career back in 2000, soon after graduating in Communications/Advertising (PUC-Rio), working with advergames and webgames using Flash and Director at LocZ Multimedia, where he contributed to the design and development of games for clients, such as Volkswagen and Parmalat, along with some independent titles. Chico has a master's degree in Digital Game Design (University for the Creative Arts, UK). His final project was exhibited at events and festivals such as London Serious Games Showcase and FILE. Chico has also published articles for academic conferences and websites such as http://www.gameology.org, http://www.gamasutra.com, and http://www.gamecareerguide.com. He curated and organized an exhibition held at SBGames 2009, which explored the connections between video games and art. SBGames is the annual symposium of the Special Commission of Games and Digital Entertainment of the Computing Brazilian Society. Chico currently works as a digital designer at the Tecgraf/PUC-Rio Institute for Technical-Scientific Software Development, where he, among other responsibilities, uses Unity to develop interactive presentations and concept prototypes for interactive visualization software. He also works as a lecturer at PUC-Rio, teaching undergraduate design students 3D modeling and technology/CG for games, in which Unity is used as the engine for the students' projects. Additionally, Chico is a PhD student in design at the same institution.
