David T. Marchand

Writer, teacher, videogame developer and Internet artist in general (he/him). I’m a millennial from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I tend to use technology for comedic purposes. To the extent that I can, I argue for justice, cooperation, art, and a cultural perspective in most contexts I find myself in.


Below are the many channels I can be contacted through, and some of my main projects.


I make and release videogames individually (or in small teams) since 2012. Interactive prose, virtual protests, videogame jokes, socially-minded action games, ludic interpretations of local news, parodies of Argentine games created by my colleagues… Nearly all of them can be played for free on any web browser.


Matajuegos is a coop and a collective of videogame criticism and development, founded by me and some of my colleagues in 2016. We make games for ourselves as well as for like-minded organizations and projects who want to venture into the interactive world. Additionally, we write about game culture, create videos and podcasts, and translate texts about the world of videogames into Spanish.


I teach game development since 2016, at Escuela Da Vinci (Buenos Aires) and other institutions. I’ve taught to people of all ages: elementary school students, college students, retirees, and everything in between. Most of my classes focus on approachable tools like Construct or Twine and require no previous coding knowledge.


En busca de Porko is a podcast about videogames that I make since 2019 with the rest of Matajuegos. In each episode, we interview a guest about their career and we analyze a game by legendary Argentine developer Porko. We’ve had international guests as well as several figures from the Argentine videogame community.


Letrísmica is a (Spanish-language) song lyrics analysis podcast that I make with my mother since 2019. In each episode, we read the lyrics to a popular song with an eye for attention, line by line, and we try to discern its meaning to the extent that such a thing is possible. After the analysis, we tend to record low-quality a capella covers for them.
