Radical Graphics is an Indie Development Studio based in Amsterdam, Europe. They design and develop entertainment software such as Web Apps, Games and Gamification solutions. The studio is made up of Manuel González and José Gómez de Lara, two game industry veterans going indie to the exciting future : Game Design, Mobile, Web Apps, Gamification & Virtual Reality.
HistoryEarly Prehistoric times
It all started by three high-school friends at the end of XXth Century in a borrowed office space in Costa del Sol, Southern Spain. Radical Graphics Studios was founded as a moniker for naming their different projects. As courious kids, they tried to tinker with a wide range of stuff: web, shortfilm production, boardgame development, fanzine publication, video production, music, social networks (yes in 1999!).Early history
After graduating, both friends ended up working in Ireland running after the dot com bubble and new console generation hype. José M. was working for Microsoft and Manuel for GOA , Warhammer Online Operator. After the Irish days, José went to move out to Netherlands, and Manuel back to Spain. After landing jobs in the game industry (Sony and Localsoft), booth saw clear the opportunity of creating Radical Graphics as a serious business.After that
A project about gamification on education appeared. And after seting the workflow quickly for remote collaboration, the project evolved in a way that failed to get funding. After this spark that actually initiated everything, they weren't able to let the idea of Radical Graphics dye slowly. They got themselves together and quoting The Architect from The Matrix movie: "There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept", the pike on Flanderns was planted... Today, Radical Graphics is producing indie games and researching new forms of entertainment.
