Rafael is the Game Design Lead at CryptoKitties. He is expanding the universe around the first-ever blockchain game into an experience that will bring a billion users to the blockchain.

Rafael explores the limits of user agency via experiences and games. With a Master's Degree in Game Design from France’s National School of Video Game and Interactive Media (ENJMIN), his professional career spans 10+ years of designing game and systems from a user perspective. During his nine years at Ubisoft, he helped design several AAA game series, including Splinter Cell, Far Cry, and Rainbow Six. Rafael spent the past two years working on CCP Games’ Eve Online.

Rafael believes in the limitless potential of blockchain for games, and knows that games are how the world will discover the benefits of this complex phenomenon. He sees blockchain as an important tool to structure an innovative kind of creativity. It opens possibilities for players to engage with games in new ways, and with a higher form of expression. The player’s freedom can be hugely amplified by this technology, and Rafael knows we have only scratched the surface with CryptoKitties.
