A nostalgic restrospective
Some of us remember the atari, some others, belong with pride to the Nes or Snes generation, and although none of us had the opportunity to play with the colecovision, and not because we are not old (Let’s accept it in the office, some of us have already passed the 30´s), but rather, because in our city at that time, that kind of technology did not arrive, and if it did, it were almost inaccessible because of the high prices …
For those times; we are talking about the end of the eighties, the beginning of the nineties approximately, in Mérida, Videocentro existed and some smaller rental companies; and if you ask it, the answer is No, Blockbuster still did not arrive. The fact is that, for those who do not remember; Videocentro and these mini BETA and VHS video rentals, were the only places where one could rent not only movies, but also, some other game titles, to entertain us playing with our consoles.
We fondly remember our childhood, and how we put together our kids allowance or how we were looking for a way to get the money to rent those titles, and once this was done, on Friday we could stay playing rented videogames until noon on Sunday or wait for Monday and pay a surcharge, anyway, if everything went wrong, we could go to the arcades or play a few matches of Mortal Kombat or Street Fighters in the tortillería … Those were the good times!
This passion and interest in video games, is what led us to create Baktún Labs, because it is not only the desire to play, now we add the desire to create video games as good as those of that time or even better.
