FEATURED AVATAR: REINALDO VIEIRA, SURREAL UNREAL ENGINE DEVELOPER
WHAT’S YOUR AVATAR STYLE?

I like to rock the remote-work look in SURREAL. Usually I wear a semi-casual shirt with shorts/sneakers because I could be in a meeting, or I could be running off somewhere to check some deployed code running in the platform.

FAVORITE FEATURE IN SURREAL?

I really like the ‘Click to move’ system because I can locomote with just one hand. This is basically movement, camera panning, and gameplay interactions all with the convenience of a single click. Plus, I can use my other hand to code while I navigate!

FAVORITE DANCE MOVE IN SURREAL?

I like the Floss because of a certain game you might have (definitely) heard of...

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT SURREAL?

I’m a Game Developer and part of the Tech Lead team. Basically I write code for cool new features, maintain some current ones, and help make sure new team members are up to speed with our core concepts.

WHERE DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE OF EVENTS?

I would love to see mixed events where realistic and surrealistic dimensions meet. Approximating digital/virtual events to the real thing, while increasing accessibility and engagement, is the key challenge for the current builders of virtual platforms. SURREAL is actively working towards a solution for this... and that’s one of the big reasons why I love working here.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCI-FI FILM OR TV SHOW?

The Fifth Element. If you don’t know what the actual fifth element is, spoiler alert: it’s LOVE. Do everything with love. You might just save the planet…

WHEN NOT IN SURREAL WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?

I play in VR, code, play family friendly video games with the fam, and work-out so I can level-up my body (yes, it’s fun to me, lol!).
