How did I create the game?

PINGO PINGO is a superb new edition of SQUAD SEVEN, with new theme, soundtrack and illustrations, by Iello.

The creation of SQUAD SEVEN was a long and thrilling adventure.

I always wanted to create games that provided an intense and original experience. The first idea was to use a sound track to give the tempo of the game.

I am a huge fan of brasilian music and in 1992 I created CARNIVAL, a game with a sound track. The idea of the game was to gather musicians, dancers, drummers to open a school of samba. It was a board game and it was the first step towards SQUAD SEVEN.

As years went by, I tried many themes (Mission Impossible, Barcelone olympic games, Disco-Funk…) to eventually create Explorers, a huge boardgame, full of accessories.

Then one day, I made up my mind : I decided to make a card game in the Indiana Jones spirit. I called it INFRAGA JONES and the prototype had a huge success. Thanks to Phlippe des Pallières, I signed a contract with Foxmind and the game came out as SQUAD SEVEN. The game won the Game of the Year award 2004 in France.

It was my second game awarded in France (The first one was DRAGON DELTA in 2001).

A free version of SQUAD SEVEN 2 is available in the downloads section of the site. It’s a more hectic version of the game, and takes place in a temple lost in the sands of north Soudan

SQUAD SEVEN eventually got a new life with IELLO in 2015 under the name PINGO PINGO.
