VALERIO DI DONATO
CEO AT 34BIGTHINGS – REDOUT
Valerio Di Donato is head of one of the spearheads of the video game industry in Italy, 34BigThings, based in Turin. Author of the international success Redout, futuristic racing game released on Pc, PS4, XboxOne and Nintendo Switch and supported for over a year with numerous DLC and additional maps.
Valerio in the last 10 years has developed games for console (Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Wii U, X360, Playstation 3, Wii), PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and mobile (iOS, Android), always giving the maximum to achieve products of excellence.
34BigThings was born in early 2013, as “a temporary parenthesis in Italy before moving to America”. The parenthesis closed quickly, once the potentials on the territory were understood. In fact, Italy was exploding with the desire to do something of value and to find creative release valves in the video games sector. Among Valerio’s merits is that of having created an environment favorable to those people who had the right skills, grouping them in one place.
