Social Point participates in a Documentary about Videogames

The immensity of the video game industry and its annual turnover is what has prompted Víctor Frías and Juan M. Pérez to embark on the creation of a documentary called Insert Coin. After filming in different cities in Spain, they are now in Social Point, Barcelona.
The film they are making aims to explain how the video game industry works in Spain, how it has grown in the last years and what the future holds for us. Besides Social Point, other companies from Madrid and Barcelona have already agreed to be part of the documentary and have explained their business experience within this rapidly changing sector, where innovate is a must-do.

We work hard and we party harder!

An (extra)ordinary Friday evening at Social Point!
It’s a tradition that on Friday night we gather, laugh and drink some beers, but this Friday was a bit different and a bit bigger of an event!
It all started with a typical party dinner- burgers, chips, french fries, beer and once our tummies were full it was time for the comedian to step on the stage.

Put on your Poker Face and play!

What an amazing night we spent last Friday!
Social Point office became a huge game room where Games Night was celebrated. Thanks to HR it was an evening full of laughter, jokes, food and fun.

We played several games and did fun activities. While some of us were playing poker, others preferred ping pong or just chatting with a beer in the hand. Among all activities done along the evening the star game of the night was the Pictionary.
