Leo Toivio Coding Game Designer

Hi!

I’m Leo and I love games. I’m a co-founder of Right Nice Games that is currently developing the award winning game Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island. If you’ve been to game developer events in Stockholm you’ve probably met me or at least seen me once or twice. My role as a developer is to take care of the game design, scripting and level design. During my career I’ve experienced a fare share of project management. I also play the drums, tweet and make websites (like this one!).

I’ve been to many events including Comic Con GameX, Swedish Game Awards and Nordic Game Conference and represented my company and the schools I’ve attended. I’m always excited to participate in interviews. To present the game and let people play it on the show floor are one of the big rewards for me when creating a game. To see people in real life having fun with the game beats everything. It’s also a really good opportunity to get to know people and make connections. At GameX for example I invited a random person to play our game that turned out to work at Tobii Eye Tracking, now we’re looking into how we can implement it into our game.

Since I started at Klara Södra Gymnasium 2011 I’ve been a part of more than 15 different game projects on several platforms including PC, iOS, Android, Oculus Rift and Google cardboard. When I’m programming I always work with a scalable mindset and write the code in way that it’s easily iterated and expanded on. Most of these projects have been game jams or school related however I’ve also been involved with other professional studios like Gone North Games and Paradox Interactive in the QA department.

Thank you for taking a look at my portfolio. Feel free to contact me with any questions and/or feedback on the site.
