Description

Melbot is an entertainment startup founded in 2017 by David Montero and Ivan Expósito based in the sunny east coast of Spain. Both come from top tier agencies in the Industrial Design and Videogames sectors, and after working in projects for several fortune 50 companies and being creative souls, they decided to start their journey to create entertainment products in their own terms. Their vision was to blend the digital and physical worlds to create transmedia products and franchises that use technology in a magic way, with the noble intention of just making people have a good time. Melbot has put together a strong trans-disciplinary team with its focus on designing and developing products that always have a rich narrative, an outstanding execution quality and a versatile scalability. They have won several European awards with their first title Melbits World, a game based on a new IP that wants to make us rethink our relation with everything digital in a positive way.

Awards & Recognition

  • "PlayStation Talents 2017. Game of the Year Award." -
  • "Cs UPV Best Project Award" -

Selected Articles

  • "The sickly sweet, blocky Melbits themselves are cute, but the worlds that surround them are also eye-catching in a minimalist way. It’s certainly hard to think of a PlayLink game as visually appealing as this one."
    - Sam Brooke, PushSquare
  • "Melbits World is a great game in which you’re not just playing with your kids, but also communicating with them as you try to solve problems together. It certainly is one of the most intuitive and fun Playlink titles so far – one where it makes perfect sense for it to be a Playlink title too."
    - Staff, PressPlayNews
  • "Melbits World promete una divertida experiencia que no sólo celebra el trabajo en equipo y la importancia de cada cual cumpla con su rol, sino el ambiente positivo en Internet."
    - Laura Luna, Meristation
  • "Se va haciendo más interesante a medida que sube la dificultad y se han avanzado unos cuantos niveles. Es un concepto original e interesante para un multijugador cooperativo y que puede poner a prueba las habilidades de una familia y ayudarle a sentirse más unida."
    - Sara Borondo, Vandal
