Technical Designer/
Game Programmer

I think that people are able to create the unimaginable using our current technology. The only thing that holds us back is our own imagination.

RESEARCH

One of the most important steps in creating a game or application is doing your research. “Why isn’t my product already released?”

PROTOTYPE AND PLAYTEST

Never just try something and expect that it will work. You’ve been in this process for a long time and just because you understand everything doesn’t mean everybody will get it.

CREATE AND POLISH

The toughest part of the product. Finish and polish your product without adding new features that needs to be tested. 

About me

My name is Rick Ruiten, almost graduated at the Universtity of Arts Utrecht (HKU), and I am 22 years old. I’ve been working since 2014 in the hospitality industry and decided to follow my dream to become a Game Developer.

During my student years I’ve been able to work with great diverse teams and together we created some cool projects. Mostly I’ve taken the roll as Game Programmer, but recently I decided to focus less on die hard programming and more on collaborating with the designers to create and playtest next level prototypes.

Things I’m great at

SOCIAL SKILLS

Because of my hospitality background I can easily communicate with people. If you’re up for a chat or want to discuss what you are working on just hit me up.

MATHEMATICS

Ever since high school I’ve been fascinated by numbers and puzzles. I’ll never back off on numbers or a problem involving mathematics and I would love to take on more challenges.

PROBLEM SOLVING

There is not just a ‘right way’ of doing something. There are multiple outcomes with multiple paths leading to it. People often ask me how I would’ve done it and compare it with their way of doing it, which leads to a new better result.

ENTERTAINMENT

I’m an outgoing person and I like to make people laugh, including myself. Life is all about the balance between work and enjoyment and sometimes all there is left for a perfect balance is a good laughter.

HELPING HAND

I often check on other team members if they are stuck or need my help because I know how tough it can be to fix a problem by yourself. Sometimes I’d drop my work to help them out.

COLLABORATE

I don’t mind swapping disciplines during the project, even if it’s just for a minute. I’d rather be a helping hand for every department than working on the same job over and over again.
