Skill Issue

Juan Franco Lagar

SKILL ISSUE is a fighting game geared towards beginners where you choose one of four elements to beat your opponent. Maybe you like to be abrasive like fire, calm and reactive like water, fast and relentless as the wind or sturdy and unflinching as earth. Hopefully this game will pick your interest for the fighting game genre.

Juan Franco Lagar

A bit of everything and a lot of passion for videogames.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

Having my own company and videogame IP(s).

What is a good design for you?

Designs that sparks creativity.

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

Nothing comes to mind as "challenging".

Who or what inspires you?

The games play, music I listen to and shows I watch.

How do you approach a new project?

I write/sketch down every idea and then create a roadmap for the project.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Learn what interest you on your own and don't be afraid of trying things you thought weren't for you. If you asked me before I entered this university what I thought about programming my own game I would have said "Coding scary, ew", but now I'll say "Ugh, okay bring it". I like programming now.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

Yes, I have become more accountable for my things, independent and more organized.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

I like games and needed a diploma.

What are you not going to miss in your studies?

My studies. Having to study and not working on games, I guess.

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

Family will surprise me, I'm just glad it's over.

Say hi!
