DibujoThere are many posts on this blog and everywhere on the Internet talking about making dreams a reality. Some of them started as a hobby that you put a lot of passion into, and that you decided to make it a “real” job. That’s the case of Joaquin Grech Gomendio, IMBA alum of 2010 and founder of his own mobile applications company, Echoboom Apps.

Since 2007, Joaquin started to program mobile apps; the first one was a Financial Calculator that has been top 10 in the Apple financial apps, and later on, as he was pursuing the IMBA he started to develop Dogfight, a multiplayer flight simulator that has reached more than 3 million downloads.  

“With Dogfight we explored a niche for flight simulator lovers, and with time we realized our supporters wanted more: a historical component behind the airplanes, the missions, and the fun. That’s why we decided to plunge into the next- level adventure: Dogfight Elite an educational game that begins in the World War I, and continues through the World War II”, says Joaquin, that is looking for funding for this new project on Kickstarter.  

Dogfight Elite

What makes Dogfight Elite appealing is that each one of the missions will be based on an historical fact, and it will allow you to play their historic missions. We also found it important that Dogfight Elite could be played in multiple platforms.  You will be able to fly your plane from a desktop computer or a mobile device, including Windows Phone, Android and iOS. Everyone will be able to play it from the sofa or on the go!

Kickstarter is a worldwide known crowdfunding platform that able startups   to pre-sale their products (such as in this example, Dogfight Elite) with different kinds of perks. The list of perks by Dogfight Elite starts with an “early backer” version of the game, and goes to the Marketing Guru perk, where any legal business or organization could have a landmark of their own that is permanently in the game, seen by every player. So far, they have raised more than $5,000 and the most backed reward in the one that gives access to an Alpha version of the game, something that will make the Dogfight Elite creation process an engaging and fun.

We will certainly keep you posted of the developments of this crowdfunded – crowsourced online project.

Good luck Joaquin and Echoboom Apps!

 

En este blog hemos publicado muchas entradas sobre MBA que se han decidido a hacer realidad sus sueños tras el programa en el IE. Algunos de ellos han comenzado cultivando una afición, que fue convirtiéndose en mucho más, hasta que decidieron hacerla “un trabajo de verdad”. Este es el caso de Joaquin Grech Gomendio, antiguo alumno del IMBA 2010 y fundador de la empresa desarrolladora de aplicaciones móviles Echoboom Apps.

Desde 2007 Joaquin comenzó a programar aplicaciones móviles. La primera fue una Calculadora Financiera que ha estado en el top 10 de las aplicaciones financieras de Apple.  Más tarde, mientras cursaba el IMBA en el IE empezó a desarrollar Dogfight (combate aéreo en inglés), un simulador de vuelo de la Primera Guerra Mundial que ha alcanzado más de 3 millones de descargas.

Dogfight Elite

“Con Dogfight hemos podido explorar un nicho de amantes de los simuladores de vuelo, y con el tiempo nuestros seguidores nos han pedido que exista un componente histórico detrás de los aviones y las misiones. Fue a partir de esa inspiración que decidimos poner nuestro esfuerzo en una aventura mucho mayor: Dogfight Elite un juego online educativo que empieza en la Primera Guerra Mundial y continua en la Segunda Guerra Mundial”- menciona Joaquin que están buscando financiación a través de Kickstarter. Cada misión se basa en hechos históricos, y estará disponible para jugar en múltiples plataformas: desde el PC o desde un dispositivo móvil.  

Kickstarter es una plataforma mundialmente conocida de crowdfunding que permite hacer una preventa de un producto a cambio de financiación. En este caso, Dogfight Elite ofrece diferentes beneficios para cada tipo de colaborador. La lista de premios llega a incluir a las empresas que quieran inmortalizar su marca en el terreno de juego, con lo que llaman la recompensa del “Marketing Guru”. Hasta ahora la recompensa más codiciada es la que da acceso a una versión Alpha del juego, lo que hará del proceso de producción de Dogfight Elite una experiencia inolvidable. Hasta ahora han recibido más de $5000 en apoyo y la campaña dura hasta el 4 de mayo.

Ciertamente estaremos muy pendientes de este proyecto basado en el crowdfunding – crowsourcing, que estará disponible a finales de año.

 Desde aquí deseamos buena suerte a Joaquin y a Echoboom Apps en sus proyectos!
