Locomalito shares background with many other kids from the 80s: he grew up playing arcade machines and dreaming about creating his own games. He had ideas and wanted to work on them with a passion. Years later, this vocation drove him to work on those ideas and shape them in his own spare time. His goal: creating video games with an old school flavor – adventures that you could play on a straight run, created with pixel-art and chiptune music and sound.
