Juan Pablo Reyes, Cofounder

Hi, my name is Juan Reyes and I am co-founder of Cocodrilo Dog Games.  We are a game developer company that creates video games that are related to music, especially rhythm games.

We wanted to move the company to Melbourne because we believe Melbourne is such a great place to be when you create anything related to arts.

Melbourne is the capital city of Australia and video games because of the culture of the city.

What I’ve seen so far is that people are very interested when it comes to artistic and technological innovation and video games are at the same time technology and arts. It’s a great place to be when you’re creating this kind of content.

I think there are many good reasons for a video game developer company to invest in Melbourne.

You will get the possibility to hire a lot of very skilled talent. They are also located in one of the biggest markets of the industry, in the world. Not only that, but you’re very close to Asia which has China, Japan and Korea, which are the biggest markets in the world.
