As many of you may know, Librojuegos.org is not only a gamebook blog. It is also the central hub of a spanish gamebook association called Dédalo.
These days, we have been frantically working on the first meeting ever for professionals and lovers of gamebooks in Spain, the first (and hopefully not last) Dédalo Meetup.
It will take place in the Generación X shop in Puebla (Madrid), and yours truly will give one of the speeches. If any of you guys happen to be in Madrid this weekend, and want to have a taste of what’s being done in Spain for all things Interactive Fiction, now’s a good opportunity!
This is a very important moment in our association, and it culminates the work of several years of many people. Now it’s the time to enjoy the fruits of that work, to get to know each other, and above all, to have fun with interactive literature!
