Career

Olifiers's last position in Brazil was as Head of Games at Globo TV. There he developed around 30 web-based games, some of them multiplayer, such as Thorvarium 1 and 2. He developed one massive multiplayer online role-playing game called Herois e vampiros (Heroes and Vampires). He was also the lead designer in the production of the games Conquista de Titã and My Big Brother.

Olifiers is best known not as a game designer but as a gaming journalist. He conducted GamesMania Brazil, the South American arm of the worldwide GamesMania online magazine. As a chief-editor, he led the gaming portal in the early 1990s.

After GamesMania Olifiers founded LagZero, a multiplayer-oriented gaming portal that later became the wider FinalBoss.com, currently the largest hardcore gaming portal in Latin America. FinalBoss.com is also a startup games development company.

Olifiers worked as Head of MechScape/Stellar Dawn at Jagex Ltd until he left in 2009, joining social games developer Playfish as Studio Director in the UK. He has been credited as the producer of FIFA Superstars, later named amongst the 10 top Facebook games of 2010 by InsideSocialGames.com.

In late 2010 Olifiers co-founded Bossa Studios, where he fulfills the role of Gamer-In-Chief. His first game produced at Bossa Studios, Monstermind, was launched at the Eurogamer Expo 2011 and has since been nominated for two BAFTAs.
