The brave and mighty Portuguese industry
Since the humble beginnings in the 80's, thanks to a local production of Timex Sinclair (official replicas of the ZX Spectrum), Portuguese started to adventure themselves in the video game industry. Almost 35 years later, we are witnessing the third big wave of video game development. It is such an astonish growth that just in the last 4 years, Portugal produced more titles than in the previous 20 years. Ivan Barroso, video game historian and gaming journalist, will showcase how the Portuguese industry moved itself in the last 35 years, and its impact in the international market.
