My name is Luca Cammisa, nicknamed Calvinus, and I was born in 1972. I'm a former software engineer, now an IT Administrator with the hobby of boardgames. I'm a wargamer since early 1990's when I was introduced to games by Avalon Hill titles, but I've been also a developer of computer games since early 1980's (the era of home computers such as Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64). So my background is essentially gaming!
For some years I worked as a freelance PC game developer and I developed some titles such as Pax Romana (as a support developer), published by DreamCatcher in 2003, Great Invasions (as a lead developer), published by Nobilis in 2005, World War One (as designer and lead developer), published by AgeOD in 2008 and later in 2009 with an improved edition called World War One Gold.
Then I retired from PC game development and returned to my hobby: wargames and boardgames design.
In this site you will find my published titles Founding Fathers and its major expansion Civil War & the Gilded Age (a game designed by Rick Heli, I worked as graphic designer), Rise of Totalitarianism, Secret Weapons of the Third Reich and Democracy under Siege, but also Age of Monarchs for which I've recently arranged a deal with an European Publisher.
