F2P CAMPUS VITORIA-GASTEIZ
Nacho Pintos, Lead Game Designer for King: “Free-to-play games pose a great risk but at the same time they can generate a lot of profit.”
When Nacho Pintos burst into the videogame industry eight years ago with Flee, a game that emulates the old Nintendo Game & Watch games, he was fulfilling his childhood dream. After years as a software engineer he took the leap and turned the final project of his post-graduate course in videogames into a title acclaimed by critics and players alike.
F2P Campus, the first campus focussed on the development of free-to-play videogames, was launched today in Vitoria-Gasteiz, the capital of the Basque Country. The ceremony took place at the site of the campus, the Artium museum, and included institutional representation from the Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council, the Álava Regional Government and the Basque Government.
