Initially born as “Blue Shadow Games” in 2008, and refounded in 2014 as WildSphere, we are a video game development studio based in Spain, but aim to create world-class games for all the platforms. Passion to detail, focused on goals and commited with quality is what define us.
Our soul? The team:
I have finished my education in Animation and Modelling in 2006 and then started working as 3D artist. Also I’ve worked for Genoma Animation for a couple of years in the creation of the TV series Suckers and other animation projects, and for Virtual Toys in the development of video games for Nintendo DS. At the end of 2008, I’ve set up by my own as individual developer and during the following year I’ve launched on iOS two video games created by myself: Light and Crosak. At the beginning of 2010, I’ve co-founded Blue Shadow Games together with a friend and worked as co-director, principal programmer and 3D artist for this company until it was dissolved at the end of 2013. In 2014, I co-founded WildSphere, where I work on art, programming and game design.
I graduated in Translation and Interpreting in 2009, and up to then I had collaborated with Miguel Díaz in some projects. After graduating, I started working in software localization and technical translation, for RM-Soft (as Project Manager and translator) and as freelance translator. At the end of 2010, I joined the team of Blue Shadow Games, where I worked on communication, localization and programming. In 2014, I graduated in Computer Engineering, with specialization in Computer Graphics. After that, I co-founded WildSphere, where I work on programming, game design and communication.
With more than 15 years of experience, my career developing 3D interactive projects started in 2001, within a virtual reality consulting company. Since then I’ve successfully worked on multiple projects covering serious games, advergames, simulators and interactive applications. My main roles are concept artist, generalist artist and level designer, and I’ve also worked as texture artist, modeller, rigger and animator. I also have a strong technical background, including script and c++ programming knowledge.
Although my official education is digital electronics, I’m a self-driven and a self-taught person, and both my innate curiosity and my growing interest on the videogames field, along with a natural flair for drawing and design, fueled my research on 3D real-time technologies and videogame development. After all these years of work and personal experience, I can affirm that what I like the most is to create fullfilling and unforgettable videogame experiences.

Shortly after I started working at Pokó Games in the game «Recurring Nightmare» for PS4 as a technical artist and animator, and now I joined WildSphere’s team.
Mariola Trenzano Álvarez
Since I was little my attention was drawn to technology and video games. For that reason, I studied a degree in computer engineering at Universidad politécnica de Valencia – Campus d’Alcoi. During this period I reconsidered a professional dedication related to videogames so, when I finished my studies I attended a master in 3D videogames in Valencia where I finally discovered my real passion, 3D modelling.

The first thing I decided to study was Photography and Image editing, after that I switched gears and got into computing by studying Development of Multiplatform Applications at the Henri Matisse Institute, there I discovered my passion for programming. After that, having had in my mind for years the idea of working in the videogame industry, I decided to continue studying and got a Certificate of Higher Education in 3D Animation, Games and Interactive Media at the “Florida Universitaria”, which I complimented with the Master’s Degree in Independent Game Development. After that I worked at Flynn’s Arcade, where I developed “Impossible Runner Dash” aka “Hexa Gravity” working as a programmes and game designer, I have also developed “Anyone’s Diary” for PS4, being a member of World Domination Project Studio as a Programmer, Game Designer and Project Manager.

Oscar García Cruz
Drawing and video games have been two great hobbies that I have always had, after studying illustration at the EASD I discovered the world of 3d and how it could complement my knowledge. After completing a master’s degree in 3d production and acquiring knowledge in a self-taught way, I entered the PlayStation talents program located in valencia. Now I can turn that knowledge and experience into something real in WildSphere being a part of the team as a 3D Artist.
