May will bring Polish game developers another opportunity to present their productions in China. From 11th to 12th May, 11 games will be shown at the Polish stand at Games Fusion – an international game festival held in Beijing by the influential portal GameCores.
The event is the third presentation of Polish games in China carried out with the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute. In 2017 and 2018 representatives of the Polish game development industry took part in one of the largest gaming events in the world: ChinaJoy in Shanghai, which allowed them to develop a network of contacts and establish collaboration with partners from Asia. This time, Chinese gamers in Beijing will be able to try out eleven games representing a large variety of styles and creativity of Polish developers.
One of the featured productions, Back to 1998 released by Bold Pixel, is a modern game designed in a trendy retro style that allows a player to set out for a nostalgic journey to the 1990s and experience a series of adventures in a world where games were available only on floppy disks.
Children of Morta is another example of a game using pixel art graphics, but its greatest asset, appreciated by critics, is its interesting plot: the protagonists are an eccentric family full of colourful individuals who join forces to defend their family treasure. As the developer of the game, 11 bit studios assures, the player will ‘experience not only what it means to be a hero, but to be part of a family’.
Tetsumo Party by Monster Couch, on the other hand, offers a humorous competition for up to four players. The goal is to set sumo wrestlers in poses that will allow them to squeeze through fancy shaped holes in subsequent bamboo walls. For difficulty, each of the characters’ limbs is controlled separately, and several waiters hover around offering snacks to distract the hungry wrestlers...
The Polish stand at Games Fusion 2019 is the result of collaboration between Indie Games Poland Foundation, Polish Institute in Beijing and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
