Jesus Fabre's Blog

 

I have a mixed background, studied Software Engineering and a MSc Degree in Education and New Media. Since 2009 I have been doing Social Media, PR and event management work for several independent studios and cultural associations.

I have a passion for raising awareness on promising games I truly believe in, whether be among the press or by building an active and engaged community on social media. I focus very much on understanding the philosophy of the studios I work for, listening to their feedback to elaborate the best communication strategy for their target audience.

I always take honesty and openness to criticism as my core values when I talk to the press, communities and the developers I work for.

I give classes on video game marketing, distribution and communication at ENTI Videogame Degree (University of Barcelona). Additionally, I collaborate as evaluation jury at SBGames Independent Games Festival in Brazil.

Since 2010 I keep running my personal project The Gamer Inside, a transmedia documentary archive that focuses on preserving the impact that videogames have on society, education, culture and industry. The project has three communities/branches, focused respectively in covering more locally Brazil and Spain and then a Worldwide channel for more global content.

The user interface is a really important aspect to any videogame. In Horizon Chase for iOS we had to find the perfect balance between the objectivity of a good mobile game and the simplicity we inherit from the classic references we took inspiration from.

Thanks for sharing your experience. ...

Thanks for sharing your experience. r n r nI 've been looking at your KS campaign and I believe 30K is quite high for nowadays average indie KS standards... Would ask for 15K, maybe you 'd end up with 20K or even more... but I doubt there 's enough traction ...
