As nobody made a thread yet as far I can tell, I decided to do it even though I don't speak Spanish. Hope some of our Spanish guys will help out with news and translations.

What is iDÉAME? It's a yearly developer summit in Madrid, Spain, organized by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Nintendo Iberica. Think GDC, but much smaller and with a heavy Nintendo focus (obviously).

When is it? This upcomming weekend, April 13th and 14th.

Who'll be attending? Mostly European indies, obviously. Plus a few special guests. Here's a comprehensive list of speakers confirmed so far:

Alex Neuse (Gaijin Games)
Mike Roush (Gaijin Games)
Alex Zoro (Pixel Toys)
Andy Tudor (Slightly Mad Studios)
Antonis Pelekanos (Nicalis)
Tyrone Rodriguez (Nicalis)
Arturo Monedero (Delirium)
Austin Ivansmith (WayForward)
Bertil Hörberg (Hörberg Productions)
Carlos Garcia (Anima Project)
Cedric Bache (Neko)
Clemens Scott (Broken Rules)
Dan Adelman (Nintendo)
David Walsh (Frontier Developments)
Elias Xango (Escuela JOSO de Barcelona)
Francisco Molla (Shanblue)
Francisco Tellez (EnjoyUp)
Julio Moruno (EnjoyUp)
Jordan Fisher (Pwnee Studios)
José Luis Márquez (Mercurysteam)
José Manuel Íñiguez (Akaoni Studios)
Lau Korsgaard (Knapnok Games)
Dajana Dimovska (Knapnok Games)
Martin Sauter (Shin'en Multimedia)
Martjin Reuvers (Two Tribes)
Mikael Haveri (Frozenbyte)
Nacho Garcia (Abylight)
Natascha Roosli (RockPocketGames)
Rhodri Broadbent (Dakko Dakko)
Tulio Gonçalvez (Watermelon)

Will we get some new game announcements out of this? Probably. We usually get a few every year.

Website? Sure.

Twitter? But of course! Hope you speak Spanish, though.

It's a great conference that they put together there and really get involved with the attendees. I was a panelist last year.

I've head lots of great things about it, but it never seems to get much attention.

Nice! We usually see a few new games come out of this.

Edit: Any idea on what the guys from Enjoy Up are going to talk about? I'd kill for a 3DS sequel to Chronos Twin and a Wii U/3DS port of La Mulana. UnEpic looks really cool too!

Seems like UnEpic will be there, and possibly a port or remake of Abyss.

-The hell is Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo?
-More UnEpic news, awesome!
-I really enjoyed the demos for Vampire Crystals and Zombie Panic on WiiWare. I really hope the framerate holds up in Vampire Crystals. It had issues on the Wii. Pretty fun though!

It's great how much support they've given to independent devs and wish there was a similar event here in the states. Seems like Sony's the first-party in the states giving indies love.

They say on twitter "aforo completo" that means no more people allowed in. But I can clarify if that is for visitors or for developers and such.

Nintendo is making inroads too. Microsoft seems to be the odd man out. Hopefully they get their shit together. Losing indie support for their next console could be devastating if the AAA market goes tits up.

It would be ironic if the WiiU/PS4 are the 360/PS3 for indies (meaning most indie games coming to WiiU/PS4 but not Xbox 720)

It would be like Microsoft making the same mistake Nintendo did with the N64 but with indie devs instead of the bigger devs.

But of course, we'll have to see what happens.

These are always cool, get to see a good bit of detail on future eShop games.

I'd KILL for a chance to play And Yet It Moves on the Wii U by Broken Rules. Yes yes, I know. it's on the Wii as well, but I'd love to have a HD port.

Cheers, OP! I made last year's thread, but I've been very busy this week and I couldn't find the time to do it :(

The Castlevania dude is attending because they're going to do a Castlevania homage. I guess they had to find some excuse to talk about Mirror of Fate, since I bet it's the biggest Spanish release for a Nintendo platform this year...

Anyone else attending (besides beril, of course!)? I'd love to meet some gaffers.

You've been used by Nintendo itself as an highlight at GDC. You don't have anything to worry about.

P.S. You have PM. :P

According to the iDÉAME site, there will be exactly 20 playable games. Since they've confirmed 15 of them, I guess we can expect at least five announcements!

By the way, if anyone is interested, here's last year's thread.

Five announcements? That seems a bit...much considering that we got 3 last year.

Check the dev list in the op; most of them are not Spanish and a bunch of them are American, so it's not like I'll be making the longest trip. But to be honest I don't really know myself how big the event is or what to expect, but I'm happy for the opportunity.

I guess Scram Kitty is a no show even though Dakko Dakko is there. Maybe not playable but still we might get screens? Looks really promising from the description and LOGO alone. XD

Stupid question, but is the whole event in Spanish?

So indie devs who don't speak Spanish well have to hire translators or what?

They will hire translator or simple go with English, the easiest for everyone.

First news!

- Coaster Crazy announced for the Wii U eShop (it was released earlier for iOS)
  • Mixes simulation and puzzles
  • Modify the placement of the tracks and obstacles so the passengers make it to the end while completing challenges (i.e. achieve a certain speed), three challenges per level (60 levels total)
  • Use the Wii U Gamepad to control everything, mainly using the touch screen (but most of the actions can also be done pressing buttons).
  • Off-TV, no Multiplayer


Source. (Full disclosure, I wrote that piece of news, if linking to the site I work for it's frowned upon I'll remove the link). Wii U gameplay video coming soon!

- Jett Rocket 2 minigames gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhnYi...layer_embedded. EDIT: Regular gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UodvL...yer_detailpage
  • There are three different kind of levels: 2D levels, 3D ones (inspired by Super Mario 3D Land) and racing levels.
  • The game will have about 7 levels in 2D, 4 in 3D and 4 racing levels.
  • The MC can jump. Roll to defeat enemies or discovering secret paths.
  • You can also use the jetpack to levitate for a few seconds.
  • There will final bosses. For example, in the demo there was a giant robot that attacks you with a circular saw and laser beams after sending waves of deadly cyborg piranhas.
  • You can collect points to unlock new levels, power ups or extra lives.

- I've been told that they've also shown new trailers for Cult County and Two Brothers, but I wasn't there :(

So, anyone else attending? I already said hi to beril.

So Jett Rocket II is more of a side scroller than it's predecessor? Looks like it has that 3D Land corridor type of design.
