Welcome to my website! My name is Daniel Otero Prol and I’m a telecommunications engineer and videogame programmer. Currently, I’m working as Engine Programmer at Smilegate Barcelona, where we are building a studio from scratch and working on an exciting new game.
I consider myself a highly motivated and hard-working person, always striving to improve my skills and learn new things. My main focus always has been game porting, engine and code optimization but I’m also interested in exploring other areas such as networking, AI, and rendering.

Generalist Programmer on Fuel Renegades
In my time as a student at ESAT, I was able to publish Fuel Renegades, a cooperative and multiplayer racing game made by a group of students. It was an amazing experience that not only taught me valuable lessons about game development and technology but also about the importance of teamwork and collaboration. We won a couple of awards given by the Student Game Contest including Best Technology and Second Best Game of the competition.
