Hello, my name is Arseniy Klishin, I am a Senior Producer at Sony Interactive Entertainment and a co-founder of Party for Introverts.
Previously I have been an Associate Producer at Splash Damage and at Gameloft NYC on “Spider-Man Unlimited”.
I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a Master of Entertainment Technology degree. Prior to CMU, I have received my Applied Mathematics and System Programming degree at Moscow State University.
I wanted to develop games since the age of 8, and now I am finally making this dream come true.
This is not about killing monsters, space marines and aliens.
This is not about raising your level in order to buy more powerful armor.
This is not even about having fun with your friends online by finishing pointless fantasy quests.
For me digital and interactive media is a new form of passing your thoughts and emotions to a person. It is about telling the story, it is about sharing your feelings with a player. Not only it has visual, audio, text component, it has interactivity. This tool is very difficult to handle, but in right hands, it may become extremely powerful.
In fact, I would argue with a term “game” – this is not necessarily something you can win. You don’t win anything when you read a book, but you get life experience. And in my opinion, this is exactly how it should work with Interactive Media.
Please, do not hesitate if you would like to contact me, I am always happy to meet new interesting people.
Very best wishes,
