This is the time of the year when our hometown Bilbao shines on videogame events. We of course attended AzPlay 2017 and Fun & Serious Game Festival, showcasing our upcoming horror game Mindtaker, which is being developed along with Virtualware. It has been great to be again in touch with people from the gaming industry, media and, of course, the gamers!
AzPlay is the celebration of the videogaming industry in the Basque Country. There were interesting talks and a whole lot of both new or upcoming games ready to play in a big hall. Visitors were able to enjoy Mindtaker VR Experience along with other games. Also, director Jon Cortazar held a talk about the origins of the development of Mindtaker and took part of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest in which we were selected for the Qualify Round. All in all, a top place to meet our colleagues from the industry, media and share knowledge!
We also took part in the Fun & Serious Game Festival, as we were invited again by PlayStation Iberia to join their PlayStation Talents booth. Mindtaker VR Experience was running during the whole event inside the Fun Zone and also Jon was able to explain lots of game design curiosities on Mindtaker. Overall, a great experience for us, specially to gather gamer’s feedback and to provoke some scares to the audience!
