From The AnalogXP (Issue 1 - Jun 2014):
It all started as a joke. When the first Laboratório de Jogos (The Gaming Lab) was announced in 2013 there was this phrase: “In 2013, Belo Horizonte is going to be the capital of the games.”Well, during the Gaming Lab it sure was. But at the same time a lot of new RPG conventions started to appear around Belo Horizonte. We decided to take our indie games at these cons and announce what was happening. Many started to follow us and our ideal of creating and self publishing games.
Kobold’s Den was founded a week after Laboratório de Jogos. A game store that also had a collection of games for anyone to come and play for free... and also a indie game publisher. When PULSE won the World Game Chef the first pages were seen by many players that were just hanging out there, and their opinion was taken into consideration since the first playtesting. Also all the indie game designers used to hangout there and discuss about every crazy idea or new gaming headlines.
It was time to put everything together. One was great editing videos, other had a great camera, other was a great designer, and another was great with papers and printing. With all our strength combined, we became stronger.
Capital dos Jogos is a collective. Each one does what he does best and we all harvest the rewards together.
All of us are Capital dos Jogos.
