Hello and welcome!

My name is Nuno Donato. Computer programming has fascinated me since I was 7 years old. I look at games as a way not only to express myself, but also as something with tremendous potential to change people. Bit Outside The Box is my own project to imagine and create games having a special set of values as guidelines:

  • fun
  • positive and educational
  • small and minimalist
  • beautiful and artistic
  • original and creative

I’m always looking at ideas and ways to create games that are hard to pitch 🙂 Creativity and the human mind are things that fascinate me a lot, and that I love to study and develop. Creating games has also been one my favorite occupations because it allows me to keep exploring this field in new ways.
For that reason, I don’t write only about the technical aspects of game development, but also about our creative process, tools and techniques that aid us, new findings and resources that can be useful to us all.

In order to attempt reaching a better support for this creative work, I’ve decided to continue my devlog at Patreon, where my patrons can also get exclusive sneak peeks at what I’m doing and getting an early access to builds.
I’m looking forward to create a vibrant community of people, who are genuinely interested in something different and in being a part of it.
