About Me

Hi, my name is Francesco Maisto, I am a game designer and developer with over 20 years of experience working for various game companies, including a 7 years long full-time commitment with Miniclip.com and 3 years of employment with Derivco (Microgaming).

I am currently employed at Ringtail Studios as a Game Designer for Generation Zero, a game by Systemic Reactions (Avalanche Studios Group).

I’m dynamic, passionate, meticulous, creative, and result-oriented with a unique combination of creative and technical skills.

Also, I love cheese, turtles, and swords.
