We arrived to Valencia Fair on thrusday morning, it was plenty of people all over the world at the main entrace organized in long lines, most of them with big luggage keeping clothes for several days (many gamers spend the nights in a pavilion enabled for them) and computers, devices etc. to play and compite against each others gamers.
The space was divided into several areas, the most popular is the LAN area where gamers play againts each other local or internet gamers, in a free mode gaming, The eSports area, where take place the official tournment of some very known games (like League of legends, Call of duty, StarCraft II, Counter Strike etc.), The Expo area, where the most innovative companys show their latest releases. And finally the DreamStore, where people can buy all kind of equiments, from all the major brands, for enjoying videogames
We also lived new experiences, we saw professiional gamers tournaments online and their supporters like a real sport game, we tested new technology such as the Oculus VR, a new virtual reality headset device designed for immersive gaming, cosplays etc.
"Rules of Mafia", "Ninpo" and "Unnamed 101" (currently on Kickstarter). We were very impressive about the great quality of these projects. After the lectures we were talking to the artists and programmers of these projects and we share opinions about different matters such as the present of videogame industry, development frameworks, means of financial etc.
Thank also to blogocio.net who was kind enough to publish an article about "Nagual", after we know them at Dreamhack :-)
See all you in DreamHack 2014
