Description

KaleidoGames, an independent studio developing polished fun games and useful apps. The addictive playability and difficulty of the games are strongly influenced by MSX (8-bit computer), Commodore Amiga (16-bit computer) and Arcade games from 80s and early 90s.

History

Short History

Jaime Dominguez - professional flash developer since 2004. In 2012, developed a remake of a game called Valkyr. In 2013 decided to go one step further and make his own game gathered an illustrator a composer: Beekyr was ready for the world and KaleidoGames came to life. Since then, Jaime has been developing apps and games with help of some other artists reaching high quality polished titles.

Games

In 2014 we released Beekyr Eco Shoot'em up. It was our first game as studio. We made a few big mistakes, not many games sold but lots of downloads and very high ratings: 4/5 stars. In 2015 we released Vortex Attack, we made different mistakes but this time it was better, few games sold and quite good reviews. Then, there was a whole year full of experimentation with Vortex Attack updates, tournaments and fairs: we're selling a lot more then and received 95% positive reviews in Steam. Later in 2016, have started a remake of our first game (Beekyr), we felt the game had a lot of potential we just had to fix its problems...We releas it in 2017, this time we hope we made less mistakes.

Fairs assistance (Since 2014)

We have organized contests in 11 fairs: RetroMadrid '14, Madrid Games Week 2014, Salón Manga Barcelona, ParlaBytes, RetroSevilla, Madrid Retro Weekend Chibi Japan, Arcade Con, RetroMadrid Days, Madrid Games Week 2015, 3DWire 2015, Parlabytes 2015, RetroAlba 2016, Japan Weekend Retro 2016
