Mario J. Lucero (born Mario Julian Lucero) is the cofounder, designer, and CEO of Heaven Sent Gaming. He is responsible for the co-creation, alongside his wife Isabel, of the vast majority of HSG’s publications, and the fictional universe that ties it together.
Born on June 8, 1988, he grew up in Albuquerque the middle child between two sisters. He was raised by his mother, Cathleen Lucero, and grandparents, Joe M. Lucero and Antonia “Toni” Lucero. He was raised Catholic, and attended public school during elementary school, Lucero attended private Adventist schools during middle and high school. There he gave his life to Jesus, and became a non-denominational Christian, he also discovered his interest in computers and, at the age of 12, began to build computers and program homebrew video games initially on PC, Nintendo, and SEGA platforms; in high school he also met cofounder, and girlfriend, Isabel (whom he married on their 10th anniversary October 24, 2014).
He is now an author, game designer, musician, journalist, and web personality. A regular modern-day Da Vinci.
