Leopoldo Manquiseil

Leopoldo Manquiseil –  The videogame industry is in danger!

A dishonest organization (A.M.E.) has set out to monopolize the industry and thus control the minds of the players. Developers and distributors have two options: either they take their side or else the market will end up crushing them.

The freedom of creation has disappeared and only small independent studios seem to offer a small resistance.

Our hero? He is none other than the great David Sant… Sorry, we cannot reveal his identity for now. He calls himself “Leopoldo Manquiseil”.

Destiny already seems to have its own “chosen”, so now you be the one to put yourself in Leopoldo’s shoes: jump, climb, shoot… Do whatever it takes to get our hero to bring peace and we can be one step closer to the second Golden Age for the industry in the Spanish region!

But don’t worry, Leopoldo Manquiseil won’t be alone in his adventure: he’ll count on the support and help of big industry characters like “Gonzo” Suarez, Luis Quintans, Sara Borondo, Bruno Sol, Ramón Nafria or Santi Valero, from Video games for food.
