Later, several friends got together to create Canoranima (2010), a point-and-click adventure game that we couldn’t finish. In this development I met David Mariscal, a friend of Francisco, programmer and video games lover who went away to study the Master in Video Game Creation at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain).
The Noche en Blanco is a celebration into the night which aims to bring contemporary artistic creation to citizens for free. It’s an idea born in Paris (Nuit Blanche), in the year 2002, which has expanded to many other European cities. In my city, Malaga, the Noche en Blanco is celebrated in May from the year 2008.
I am a member of “MálagaJam”, an association of game developers from Malaga. To expose video games for the first time in the Noche en Blanco, the association organized a game jam the previous weekend. A game jam is a gathering of game developers for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time, in this case 48 h. Game developers are generally made up of game designers, programmers, graphic designers and musicians. The proposed theme was “The night of the stars”.
