Here's a small excerpt from the story:
Israel may be the startup nation, excelling in almost every field in the high tech industry, but there is one field in Israel has yet to conquer– heavy-duty gaming. In a country full of technological development, it was impossible however, for Roy Shapira, CEO and Creative Director of Space Cowboys Studio, to study game development. “In Israel,” Shapira explains to NoCamels,”People are just starting to figure it out.”
“When Israelis think of games they think Angry Birds, or Fruit Ninja, but these are not games, these are things to pass the time. Interactive cinema is a real experience,” Shapira tells NoCamels. The main goal inspiring Shapira and his team when he founded Space Cowboys Studio in 2009 was to create a “triple A” quality game. Triple A games, which include popular titles such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Grand Theft Auto, feature an extreme hyper realistic game environment and attract hundreds of millions of gamers from all around the world.If they pull it off, it would be a very cool addition to the gaming world.
