About The Speaker
Founder, Beautiful Glitch
Julian Quijano started working as a creative freelancer for advertising and business consultant. In 2016 he founded Beautiful Glitch, the studio that created multiplayer dating sim Monster Prom (released in 2018).
Since its release, Monster Prom has proven to be commercially successful (selling more than 100,000 copies in less than 2 months) and critically acclaimed, receiving praise from various sources, from Steam (the game was selected as one of the best 2018 releases) to Tumblr (for 3 weeks after its release, Monster Prom was the 3rd most trending videogame).
Currently, Beautiful Glitch is working on the sequel of Monster Prom, which has gathered more than 400,000€ in Kickstarter, proving the franchise is still strong.
Quijano’s philosophy is to seek for balance between wild creativity and planned strategy, accepting both can co-exist within a videogame. Monster Prom is the result of this way of thinking, presenting a world full of wacky characters and tons of dialogue with unapologetic humor, while also keeping in mind its audience at all times, and the way both final user and potential influencer can interact with the product.
Recently, Quijano has been selected on Forbes “30 under 30” list, under the game category. This is to date one of his biggest accomplishments, paired with the fact he almost never misses when counting from 1 to 100.
