Though many changes and polishes and enhancements are being made, Europa is in a fully playable state,” says Helder Pinto. “Watching this project that I’ve been working on since 2017 come to life and become a “real” game is so rewarding. That’s the magic of games – when it all comes together, it’s like nothing I’ve experienced before.
