After the success of the first edition, in the Espai Josep Bota the second edition of Retromaniacs Arcandreu was celebrated. Well, we’ll talk a little about what our experience was in the second Arcandreu on the part of Retromaniacs. We will speak from our perspective as a developer, and we can say that we received a strong feedback from visitors when playing V.O.I.D. The command was not released at any time, there was always someone playing and the most rewarding was to see smiles on their faces as they tried to advance through the different levels shown. The receptivity was very positive and they gave us a lot of recommendations to improve the game more and more with new additions. With respect to Reknum the Awakening well, despite the fact that only the physical game was shown with a sign saying soon, it aroused a lot of concern, let’s see it was a star in our stand! While on Saturday we were focused on making our projects known, sharing experiences and receiving feedback once tested V.O.I.D. Sunday was the day of the conferences and we shared the table with Anna from Stage One Studios where we discussed a bit about the development of the independent video game in Spain with a little personal experience during the creation of our games. We left the ¨audio¨ of what could be recorded in the conference on experiences in the development of independent videogames of the event, we regret not being able to record it in a better quality but we promise that for future occasions it will be, we also share a summary video where We show our perspective with a small compilation of the videos of Frikiroom and Retromaniacs of the event, which you can also see in its entirety below in this article.
