About Me

Hello, my name is Matías Mellado but on the internet I use the nickname Arthemy. I'm a Game Designer and Unity Programmer graduated from the Universidad Nacional Andrés Bello (UNAB) in Chile. I'm interested in Technical Design/Tool Programming and System Design but game design and development in general interests me. I also have skills in other areas such as 3D ( modelling, texturing and animation), video editing, adobe suit (Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator) and some experience in project management (Although mostly summarized to work and university projects and in teams of a few people, so take it with a grain of salt).

I've been working in Unity for 7 years (4 professionally) and worked on 2 published games. Also, I've been teaching Unity and game design as a college professor for 3 years. In addition to that I’ll like to add that I’ve been constantly involved in quick and small prototype development in multiple game jams I participate in throughout the years.

In this portfolio I compile and highlight some of the things that I consider relevant about me on a professional level, such as different skills and knowledge, projects I have worked on, and different recognitions such as certificates or diplomas, among other things.

I had originally intended to make this website quite serious and sober, however I quickly thought that this would not be entirely representative, so I preferred to present the texts and descriptions of the different things in a more relaxed way.

This doesn't mean that I don't take my work seriously, quite the contrary. But if I'm honest, doing it this way is fun for me and it's my portfolio and I do it the way I want and I do with it what I want, Sue me.

Hoping Forest

Hoping Forest is a low poly tile-based puzzle game with a relaxing atmosphere where your goal is to find a safe hidden path for the frog. Help them find a new home after seeing the forest being destroyed by human progress and its water invaded by dangerous creatures. Move and rotate the different tiles to create the perfect path for each map. Avoid the hazards while you manage the fixed tiles that will force you to take a specific path. Try to catch files in your way to increase your score, but be aware, there's a limited amount of steps that the frog can do. This game was made 100% by me and can be found on Steam as well as Itch.io.

It consists of a series of minigames and tools aimed to help math teacher in their classes. With focus on remote areas of the country. My role consisted on developing many of those minigames.

LibrARy

My final year project. With the intention of promoting reading within childs, it consist of AR tales with dioramas. Once the children finish a tale, they can use the different elements to build their own stories and saw them with the same type of dioramas.

Carrera de Nautilus

College project that consist of design a game in an environment not meant to design a game. We decided to crate a game mode for League of Legends. Our main goal was to subvert the player expectation on what a team mate is and the goal of the game. In this case, you allies are in the other team and you must try to reach the other base and died in it.
I highlight it since I believe is a really good game design exercise and I'm proud of what we came up with.

Echo
