For Estefano Patricio Palacios Topic (1989 – 2021)
Estefano or “Esteto” as his family lovingly called him on 03.10.1989, in Guayaquil, Ecuador. He was an intelligent, curious and restless boy, with the desire to create games. He learned how games were made, and became fascinated by the wide possibilities of technology.

His drive infected the people around him. He managed to convince teachers to deliver video games instead of class projects throughout high school and his studies. Until he realised that teaching wasn’t giving him what he was trying to achieve, so he started his own game company.

He created Freaky Creations with his school friend, the first video game studio in Ecuador. After he led a bunch of demo projects, he came up with the idea for To Leave

He created it from scratch, with shared ideals and his vision of caring for the player’s experience throughout every decision made for the game, its mechanics, the story and aesthetics.

Stunning, inspiring puzzle-platformer that blurs genre boundaries.

To Leave is coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox

To Leave is a unique adventure game, set in a fascinating world. There is only one goal. Help a suffering boy known as Harm, in overcoming his past. 

To Leave is the last work of one of its authors, Freaky Creations’ creative director, Estefano Palacios who passed away last year. 

In the memory of Estefano Palacios
Estefano Palacios started programming video games at the age of 14. It was then that he met his longtime colleague Jorge Blacio (Freaky Creations’ current producer) with whom he made his first game project World of Mathematica.

The need to create games was so strong in him that he gave up his computer studies in the last year, and together with Jorge founded Freaky Creations.

The studio’s largest project to date, To Leave, which has exceeded the expectations of its creators, is also a life project of Estefano. Console releases are dedicated to him.

ATTENTION! CYBER BANK HAS JUST BEEN HACKED! We know the winners of two Cyber Protocol contests

The old-school arcade game Cyber Protocol has never been so intense. In December, the best of the best compete with each other, battling through deadly levels and trying to get the highest high score—and $1000! Meanwhile, those who wanted to share their impressions could win a PlayStation 5.

We thank all participants for their engagement! Below is the list of winners and a little surprise.

#CyberProtocolWOW

Wondering what the first impression of Cyber Protocol players was? Now you can find them on Twitter under the hashtag #CyberProtocolWOW.

In this contest we asked players to complete the first level of Cyber Protocol and tweet the first words that came to mind after finishing it. The prize was a PlayStation 5.

And the winner is… @gsimo625.

Thank you for your comment about the game:

#HighScore in Cyber Protocol

The second contest was inspired by the old days—like the whole game—where high scores actually mattered. We decided to bring back the tradition and reward the best players in the world with cash prizes.

To take part in the contest, you had to write on Twitter or Facebook a post „I’m competing for the #highScore in Cyber Protocol game” and play in the „TOP 20 Global Ranking” mode.

The competition ended on December 31, 2020 at 23:59 GMT.

Here is the list of winners:

1st place: VSIMCO ($1000)

2nd place: JENERGY ($200)

3rd place: HEIKAI ($100)

#unexpectedMessage

Although sinister corporations are relentless in their attempt to take total control of communications, we managed to contact the best player in the world!

We bring you the transcript of an interview with the winner of the #HighScore in Cyber Protocol contest.

BARTEK, REDDEERGAMES: How many hours have you played Cyber Protocol in total?

VSIMCO: This is actually a tough question to answer since I played the game on all the platforms it has released on (Xbox One, Switch, Steam). Xbox One ~ 50 hours (first version I played), Switch ~ 4 hours (have not beaten it yet), Steam ~ 460 hours (though I guess leaving arcade mode paused overnight would have that effect).

After such time you can probably judge it fairly. What do you think is the best thing about Cyber Protocol?

My favorite part of Cyber Protocol is definitely the interesting mazes – and finding the optimal path through those mazes. 

A lot of logical puzzles require mostly just a lot of thinking. Cyber Protocol adds the challenge of timing in combination with the logical deduction needed to solve the mazes which gives it a unique flare. 

There are similar games to Cyber Protocol out there – Cyber Protocol keeps things relatively simple for the player (you go up, down, right, left), the complexity and variation is all external  to the player and shows up in the puzzle itself – I liked that simplicity – you do not need anything external to the game itself to solve a puzzle. 

The combination of logical thinking, arcade timing, and no external knowledge needed are the best things about Cyber Protocol.  

Did you plan to win 1000$?

No. My goal for the Steam version was to be able to beat the game in less than <10 lives (23 lives for the winning run) – I did not achieve that goal – but will probably come back to the game. The longest I went without dying was actually around 50 stages.

Around December I thought I had a good chance of winning the competition so my focus went from not dying to finding consistent speed run paths through the game. Consistency is important in a run which is going to last 2-3 hours going through 100 levels where one small mistake could kill you – and using checkpoints takes up time which eats up your score. 

How will you spend 1000 dollars?

Upgrading my gaming setup.

Thanks again to all the participants. Follow our Twitter account @gamesreddeer to stay up to date with all the competitions!
