My DK Arcade (2019)

My name is Leonardo Amora Leite, born in 1976, and I’ve been working in the entertainment industry since 1995, in various areas. My career began with video editing and post-production for commercial videos on television, and then I pursued my graduation in Graphic Design. In January 2006, I moved to Porto Alegre and joined the first game company in Brazil, Southlogic. There, I had the opportunity to unleash my creativity in various roles, including illustrator, graphic designer, conceptual artist, and eventually as a game designer. Our main product, Deer Hunter from Atari, was a great success. While serving Ubisoft, our company developed the Wedding Designer, a game for Nintendo DS. I was a game designer and illustrator on this project, which included my first experience with pixel art. The game sold over 1 million copies, and as a result, Ubisoft acquired our studio.

In the fall of 2010, Ubisoft closed down its two game development studios in Brazil. At that time, I had the opportunity to leave my country, but I realized that success is not just about where you live, but also about your determination to achieve your goals. In January 2011, I founded amoraleite.com, a company focused on art, design ideas, and game development. Since then, I have won five national awards for game development and entrepreneurship, competing against around 250 registered groups (about 1000 people per contest) on average. As the Art Director of my company, I have created the art and illustrated many commercial games, children’s books, and board games for numerous companies, including major ones in Brazil. As an indie game developer, I have created around 30 games, all of them original IPs.
