Maldita Castilla

Moby ID: 60388



The game idea was born during a weekend trip to Segovia.
It was inspired by paintings, codex and places from medieval Spain, by the book The Amadis of Gaul and by arcade games like Ghost 'n Goblins, Black Tiger, Tiger Road, Shinobi, Rygar, Karnov, Rastan, Trojan, Legend of Hero Tonma…

It features the genuine sound of the YM2203 FM chip.

It almost got canceled because of a repetitive strain injury that became a chronic problem. After a long process, I learned about my own physical limits and how to deal with both my day-job and game dev in a more healthy way.

It had a warm welcome in the retro and arcade communities. Several arcade cabinets were built for display in associations like RetroMadrid, Arcade Planet and Arcade Vintage Museum.

Its main suite was performed by the Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra (PlayFest, 2014) and the Games&Symphonies orchestra (Valencia, 2016).
