Megacorpin Games‘s motto is “we make special games to make you have special moments“. They started two years ago with a crowdfunding campaign and a single game: Incómodos Invitados [Unwanted Guests]. They have already made the third edition and have issued the English language version. A great success that predicts a great future.
Great Western Trail (Más que Oca)
The central topic this year is trips. This game is a must in every game collection with dollars in focus. You are a cowboy who must bring their Texas herds to Kansas City.
Ratland (Draco Ideas - Eclipse)
With a design for children, some sinister mice make their own gangs. Each player is a member of one of those greedy gangs. The objective is becoming the most populated gang, controlling the rest and stocking all the food that you can. Yum! Who lost their cheese?
In future editions we want to widen this perspective, with the addition of topics or settings not necessarily connected with horror. This way we’ll be able to show the educative, cultural, as well as leisure dimensions of the rich variety of desktop games.
The event will also include lectures on the world of games, and an important offer of Escape Rooms. Alternative and educative leisure activities are meant to be central in our cultural offer.
The first edition of Molins Horror Jocs took place in 2017 with more than 150 attendants and 12 guest publishers.
