“Our goal is to share with gamers not only the main moments of the event, but also some striking episodes of the industry history in the country,” says Marcelo, noting that the book also tells a bit about his personal path, that began as a passion for video games in his childhood and became the dream to bring BGS to more than 300,000 visitors on each edition. “In this book, the reader will follow the first part of a long road that is far from over. The 11th edition of BGS in 2018 already has big names confirmed and promises to be even better than the last and the beginning of a new chapter,” he adds.
