Historical-Games-Factory[1]Polish company Historical Games Factory has a great purpose, to create historically accurate games that reflect the theme. Lots of games try that but it’s a rather difficult thing to achieve and you need to know your history very well.

With Sigismundus Augustus they did a great job and created a really deep and complex game and continued with First to Fight (review coming soon!) and the way they increased their production quality between the games is staggering. Enough to make anyone realise how serious and how good these guys are.

With Ark of Animals they cater to the younger gamers with a memory game that will also have adults very entertained (specially adults with bad memory like me!

But there is more to the company and I got together with Piotr Żuchowski to ask him about the company’s comings and goings.

And where they are going is a great future they have ahead!

pic1332456_t[1] Golden Egg Games has produced some super cool games.

Historia, Fallen City of Karez, Alliances, City Council, Florenza: The card game…

And they’ve had some seriously great successes in Kickstarter with Athlas – Duel for Divinity, a two players game in which each player takes the role of a god-like being taking a test of adulthood to gain access back to paradise.

I got together with chief designer and overall ruler of the company to find out what else they’ve been up to and what we can expect in the future.

pic2041077_t[1]If something can be said about GenX Games is that they are uncompromising with their games. They publish what they like to publish and think it’s fun and, more often than not, they get it right!

This past Spiel they came out with “The Possession”, a homage to the Evil Dead movie and its genre.

With all the fear, blood and demonic presence, this game puts the players in the shoes of some young people who have to survive the night and try not to become demons themselves.

Mind you, they can indeed turn into demons, which can be interesting from the gaming point of view because it turns the players against other players in which is otherwise a cooperative game.

I spoke to Servando Carvallar, from the company to find out more about this rather unique game.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

pic152084_t[1]Disclaimer: Wolf gave me beer.

Admittedly, that is not enough to sway my liking a company or not. And certainly not enough for me to like or dislike their games more or less.

Also, we’re talking about Eggertspiele here… they have some amazing games.

And they are one really friendly and lovely company and I can’t mean this enough. Seriously. Next time you go to Spiel give them a go. Tell them we sent you and they will treat you very well, play games with you and make you feel welcome.

And if you don’t believe me, watch this interview!

Dark Tales, the fairy tale inspired games by dV Giochi By Paco Garcia Jaen

Dark Tales is an Italian game based on fairy tales created by Pierluca Zizzi and published by Italian company dV Giochi.

This is a very simple game that surprised me at the show firstly because of the incredible visuals and secondly because I could see a lot of people playing the game and doing so without any help, which for a convention as busy as Spiel, that is quite a good endorsement.

I spoke to to Barbara Rol, Marketing Manager for the company about the game and the company.

Hope you enjoy the show!

Video Interview Aporta Games and Doodle City at Spiel 2014 Aporta Games released Doodle City at Spiel and it went down with the crowds like a dream. Hardly  a surprise since the game is everything you could want from a new game.

The very simple gameplay and deceptively simple rules  hide a really good fun and strategic game in which players draw roads to build a city on a sheet of paper. With some randomisation courtesy of some dice, the game turns into a more strategic and unpredictable experience without stopping the game from being a family friendly one.

I got together with designers to find out more about the ins and outs of the game, as well as its future, in which there’s an app coming!

Hope you enjoy the interview!
