PlayMedusa is a virtual organization composed by a multidisciplinary network of geographically dispersed professionals. Or so it seems. Anyways: we work on something we love, from home, enjoying the flexible timetable that such a creative activity requires.
And we do this from a privileged place: the Canary Islands. Some of us live in Tenerife, some in Gran Canaria, all of us enjoy a mild climate throughout the whole year, fantastic beaches, mountains to enjoy and otherworldly volcanic landscapes.

Sparkling lights and cartoons call his attention, so it was unavoidable falling in love with videogames. That is why he is Computer Engineer by day and enthusiast game designer by night. Dungeon master in his spare time.
Aitor Lozano Bordón
Computer Engineer made up of two quarters of a programmer, one quarter of a player and another quarter of a musician. Furthermore, he storages masses of skills and hobbies in his box room. Aitor is a developer here at PlayMedusa, where he mixes up everything to create his main passion: videogames.
Computer Engineer with a superhuman skill that allows him to detect bugs that no one else finds, even on pieces pieces of software that seemed perfectly fine. Fortunately he also has an infinite amount of patience that allows him to hunt them down!
Israel Castro Casañas
Cofunder, musician, illustrator
Self-taught and explorer of as much artistic fields as he can, he always gravitates towards the audiovisual field. He’s not short of inspiration: Hayao Miyazaki, Fumito Ueda, Koji Kondo, Nobuo Uematsu, Beethoven, Danny Elfman, or John Williams. He enjoys riding across Hyrule Field, but he’s open to stomp on goombas…

Marcos Aythami Santana Montesdeoca
