Games From Spain News Recap: 19-26 April, 2024

Hey there, visitor:

The News Recap is back. You may have noticed that there was no update last week, and that’s because we were attending a new trade fair that took place in Malaga. We may have missed some interesting news, but don’t worry because at the end of May we will send you a newsletter with the highlights of the month.

That said, remember to subscribe if you already haven’t! This resource will allow you to find useful information on the Spanish games industry in just one place, instead of searching for news on the social profiles of each studio. Whether you are a journalist looking for fresh new games or a potential investor, this tool will be of great help to you.
