As a programmer Rob doesn’t shy away from diving headfirst into big projects or new technologies such as AR or VR. Mobile or pc, multi or single player, serious or entertainment game, Rob will happily code away. Whenever he can he’ll try to share the interesting programming techniques he picked up along the way.

Mart van Saane
“If it has a graphical output, I can make it work.” Is Mart’s motto. If he’s not out winning trophies on his trial motorbike, he’s creating a hyper performative renderer or working his magic on backend systems. At Alterego Games, Mart is a meticulous team-oriented Game Developer who gives it his all to minmax every project he works on and hopes to one day invent something which will be taught at universities all over the world.
Kevin Van As
Kevin is an energetic and motivated “Hagenees” living in Woerden, with a passion and Bachelor in Game Design. Kevin likes to go outside for a walk or bikeride but also likes to slam a drumkit when he’s not playing some of his favorite games like Starcraft 2, Super Smash Bros. Melee or Magic the Gathering. Next to playing games he loves to create his own and strives to one day be part of a team that creates a game with a metacritic score of 90 or higher.
Coming from an art school, Marc already mastered the art of photography. So when he discovered the art of game development, he found a new thing to master. Coming from a self-taught background, Marc is eager to learn about new things, and he will accept any problem thrown at him. Marc enjoys any form of art with a unique perspective. His ambition is to one day create an art piece known to the wider audience.
Jos van Zoelen
Besides being technically brilliant, Jos is an amazing 3D designer as well, taking a narrative approach to prop-design that is unrivaled. Every piece of art to be placed in the game is a chance to tell a part of the story.

A real team player.
Kim is a 2D artist. She started drawing and painting when she was young but as she got older she also discovered her interest in technology. She still prefers art over technology but she wanted to find a way to combine the two and that’s how she ended up doing game art. Currently she is mainly focused on creating User Interfaces for games while providing powerful concept art to the team.
Since none of the team really understand the intricate ways of web design and HTML coding, we have Charlotte to save the day. Impressed by our great website? 99% of it is her doing.
Ziggy is the dependable music and media dude. In need of some bombastic orchestra? Done! How about some 80s synthwave, no problem. Maybe a cool trailer or video to hype up a new release? Sure thing! Making things that fit is what Ziggy feels is most important. Always thinking of how the end result will turn out, he likes to keep searching until he finds the perfect puzzle piece that fits.
