Cereal Games is a company dedicated to the development of serious and educational games who has moved from the startup phase and became the first graduated company from the Science and Technology Park of São Miguel – Nonagon, located in the Lagoa municipality.
“For the Nonagon Association, it is with great satisfaction that we are witnessing the affirmation and growth of this entrepreneurial project which, after three and half years in the incubation phase, begins a new cycle of development, on which, we are convinced that will allow Cereal Games to reach major successes on the pursuit of its activity”, said the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nonagon Association, Arnaldo Machado, during a visit to the corporate space of Cereal Games that served to mark the new stage that opens for the Azorean company, after the incubation phase.
Until then, Cereal Games has been developing its projects from the Incubator Go On, an integral structure that belongs to the Science and Technology Park of São Miguel, which hosts technology-based startups and assumes, among others, the goal of enhancing their respective business ideas.
“Seeing this leap happen is the corollary of the effort and dedication of these past few years. We broke down barriers and felt that we have, in a way, set the tone for a new generation of developers and professionals in our land.”, said the Cereal Games managing partner Lázaro Raposo.
“Our insularity means great challenges for those who dare to live in the development of games, but little by little we have seen the paradigm change and public and private entities have become less conservative and more open to their potentialities”, he proceeded.
For Lázaro Raposo, also a game developer, the fact that Cereal Games was the first graduated company of Nonagon has “a great responsibility”, but it is also “an excellent tonic” for the projects that the team has in hand, “one of them with the great ambition of affirming itself at the international level”.
Cereal Games was hosted by Nonagon’s Incubator Go On in 2015, a year after it was founded, and it has currently eight elements.
Since it was created, Cereal Games has developed several games, using technologies such as Augmented Reality, mobile devices and Internet of Things (IoT) to respond to requests from local authorities, schools, museums and scientific observation centres in the Region.
