GameStart Asia 2014: Retro Games, Indie Developers, and 3D Printing
Apart from big names like PlayStation, Blizzard, Bandai Namco, and FIFA, GameStart Asia 2014 also featured a Retro DNA section (retro games), Cadaq (3D printing), and Founders Base (indie developers).
Cadaq is a 3D printing company focused on giving people with disabilities and special needs a job in creative design, engineering, and manufacturing. Its stall in GameStart provided 3D printing services. You could even watch as their 3D printer formed figurines bit by bit.
The Founders Base hosted eight indie stalls – Boomzap Entertainment, Imba Interactive, Inzen Studios, Nebo, Kinetiquettes, Liongeeks, Shawn Beck Games, and Witching Hour Studios. Some stalls showcased their work, such as holographic images that literally “float” (the holographic technology in sci-fi movies are finally here!), graphics, and artwork. Others provided services such as creating realistic figurines of game characters. Shawn Beck Games also took opportunity of the event to bring Velocibox to light, challenging GameStart visitors to survive one level. The prize was the $5.50 game on Steam.
