Joachim - Co-Founder, CEO & Writer
Joachim had the idea for The Great Whale Road a while back, and after many years managing global software projects he decided to do something people will hopefully enjoy. His key responsibility is to ensure the team's happiness, so The Great Whale Road will become the game we envision it to be.
Joachim enjoys long walks on the beach, historical fiction (as long as it includes sufficient levels of violence) and of course playing video games (he is a PC purist). Joachim is married to Birgit, so despite being the CEO he habitually follows orders.
Sergio - Lead Artist
Sergio is a 2D artist and our resident animator. When he doesn't add blood and gore to our character concepts, he is busy making those pesky ship crews row. Sergio has a degree in fine arts, with specialization in animation and graphic design.
Sergio is head game connoisseur here at Sunburned Games, he owns 511 games across current and antique platforms and has finished 347 of them. Kudos. When somebody has hidden his controller he occasionally enjoys long bike rides in the Valencian sun.
Birgit - Co-Founder & Comptroller of all Things Financial
Birgit is our CFO and slightly reluctant chief marketeer. She will tell anyone who asks (or not) that she really wanted to extend her sabbatical from the world of global finance. Tough luck - It is a big boat, grab an oar and row.
Birgit ensures that salaries are paid on time, and exciting things like working capital are in place when they are needed. Birgit enjoys hanging by the pool, Pizza (a lot) and playing with our three four kittens.
Paloma - Artist
Paloma is one of our 2D artists, who really make the magic happen here at Sunburned Games. Before joining us she studied graphic design and afterwards she earned a master in video game art. When she is not hugging her dogs or tries to exterminate cockroaches (we think that she isn't very good at it) she plays Naughty Dog games.
After the alien invasion you can shoot her on sight if she wears pink and eats chocolate, as the real Paloma wouldn't do either. The real Paloma loves Pizza, Pokémon, her two dogs, as well as her boyfriend.
Johnny - Developer
Johnny is our Unity developer as well as our AI simulation on 'Easy'. We don't think that he has won a single game during paper prototype testing. Before joining Sunburned Games he has collaborated on a number of indie game projects using Unity and Unreal. In between he also found the time to study computer engineering.
Johnny enjoys romantic comedies, rock & metal and living close to the Mediterranean. His favorite games are Monkey Island, Zelda and every single installment of Final Fantasy.
Carlos - Game Designer
'The man with many Google sheets' joined the team in summer 2016 to make The Great Whale Road great.
Víctor - Composer
The genius behind the unique music of our game.
