Karthik Subramanyam | Video Game Developer & Director


Hi! I'm a Video Game Developer & Director with formal training in Computer Science Engineering and Game Design.

My love for video games, films and music began at the age of seven. I’ve always considered myself to be a student of art of all forms. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II and Prince of Persia Warrior Within, were two games that were pivotal in the development of my direction. The immense artistry and creative pursuit of realizing their visions demonstrated by great filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan and Musicians like Steven Wilson inspired me to want to emulate their level of craftsmanship in the realm of video games.

I specialize in Gameplay Programming and in Directing the entire video game experience. My goal is to unite Gameplay and Narrative in creative ways to elevate the emotional impact felt through the experience and to create a space for the player to swim through and have their own interpretation of the experience.

In 2014, I completed my student game named Rails of Fury at Vancouver Film School. Since then, I have been working independently on my first video game with a small team of passionate developers.
