Carlos 'Uto' Sánchez is a Spanish programmer, authoring system developer, and text adventure author. His work is very influential in the Spanish and English retro text adventure scenes.

Uto is the creator of the NMP and the ngPAWS adventure systems and the co-creator (with Julio Sangrador) of Superglús.

He has developed a whole host of tools for the DAAD adventure system, such as MALUVA and the DAAD Reborn Compiler. Many of these tools have been bundled into the DAAD Ready suite of programs; which gives authors an easy way of creating DAAD text adventures for multiple platforms that can incorporate advanced tech features such as text & graphics streaming from disc.
