Bruno Cathala

Bruno is literally a child of the sixties – not the psychedelic, long-haired hippie sixties, but a born on November 22nd, 1963, coincidently, the same day President Kennedy was shot – child of the sixties.

While interested in Arts – he had a penchant for “making pretty things” as a child – he first chose a more traditional career path by studying Mathematics and Physics and then finding job security for 18 years in an R&D department working with tungsten alloys. (Don’t worry, it’s not contagious!)

Passionate about games since childhood, he started designing games as a hobby while still working his “day job”. Then in 2004, his company met with major economic difficulties and he suddenly found himself with a lot of free time on his hands. It was time to try his luck at transforming his hobby into a full time profession. It seems to be working out – close to 60 of his designs have hit the shelves since then and he still has time for freelance consulting/design for various publishing companies.

Despite all these game designs, he still has the passion. In fact Bruno is always his first customer – he only works on designs he wants to play himself… hoping of course that he’ll find many more players to share it with!
