Former Sony Computer Entertainment Europe  Strategic Content Director Shahid Kamal Ahmad left an enviable executive position to go back to make games, and apparently he has already begun developing his new creations.

For those unfamiliar, Git branching is a development process. Ahmad also settled in a new “office.”

When asked if he’ll work alone, he mentioned that it doesn’t really matter:

His Linkedin profile has been updated with the name “Crescent Code,” but Ahmad clarified with me that he intends to use his personal name for his projects instead.

He also mentioned that he became a PlayStation Partner, which means that he’s allowed to develop on PlayStation Platforms, even if he clarified that it’ll take some time for him to work on Sony’s consoles.

I’m definitely quite curious to see what Ahmad will develop in the future. He has helped a lot of games to get great visibility on PS Vita and PS4, and it’ll be interesting to play something made by him.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
