My name is Tamar Sandoval and I am the game designer and the founder of this little studio that was born in 2019 with the idea to learn and create a good portfolio. What started as my personal adventure, became the place where 11 developers from around the world work together to transform awesome ideas into awesome videogames.

This web page will be used as a joint portfolio and as my own portfolio, also I will try to create here mi blog as a game designer that I hope maybe will help other game designers. We, as a studio, will use this page jointly with the Itchio page, so please go there and follow us to play our games and see the news!

These are our games, you can play them on Itchio and also see some screenshots, concept art, read about them, and listen to the OSTs from the games

The future is always exciting and more for a small studio like us where we are always looking for new projects and ideas to keep growing. These are our next projects and WIP projects. Enjoy and feel free to drop a comment to let us know your opinions and suggestions!

The pages of these games are in construction, have a little patience, thanks!

Tamar "The Mother of Crows" Sandoval

Game Designer - Game Director - Studio Manager - Narrative Director

My name is Tamar Sandoval aka BB or The Mother of Crows. I am the founder of this studio and the game designer and director of the studio. I am a Game Designer since 2016 and a writer since 2005. I also love art and I use it to complement my stories and my designs.

In 2016 I formed my first indie studio called "Big Fear", however, I close it a year later because of my lack of experience. I was terrified to work with other developers and to say my ideas out loud. I worked with my best friend on a couple of projects, but, we never finished them.

The time passed and I focused more on being a writer, finishing my first novel Gas Mask War. The Endless War, that it is available on Amazon. And right after I felt that something was missing and that was when I decided to come back to design as my "main job". In 2018 I designed my first formal and big GDD, a Far Cry-based game with my novel as the principal theme. And in 2019 I formed this beautiful studio to participate in a GameJam, where I met some of my developers and did the connexions to find the next ones.

My biggest dream is to transform this little studio into something bigger where my ideas, my designs and stories, and the ones from my developers could transform into a reality. A place that transforms into our job, not just "a hobby" that we do when we can.

My second big dream is to work in Ubisoft. There are many good studios in which I would love to work, studios that developed games that saved, taught, and protected me. However, it was Ubi the one to put me on the right path and give me the strengths to try to fight for my dream. I am not saying that I wouldn’t love to work for other studios, I am just saying that one day I would love to work with Ubi, with my studio, or on my own.

GMW Studio is called after my novel’s name, Gas Mask War. The Endless War, because one of my biggest ambitions is to transform that novel into a series of video games. It’s a big dream, but I like a good challenge!!

The crow into our logo is called Surv and in his honor, we called ourselves crows and the members of the studio gave me the lovely name of «mommy crow».

We are this beautiful, intelligent, and creative family of crows and this is our «nest», our virtual home, a place where we are safe to fight for our dreams.

You already know me, but let me introduce you to my Murder of Crows!
