Since 2014, with the Brazil Games project, Abragames and Apex-Brasil have helped Brazil achieve much in the gaming landscape. Now, with the Brazilian Game Week, Brazil takes the opportunity to show the world what it has accomplished and how it can emerge as a leading innovator in the global industry.
Throughout five days, a different aspect of the Brazilian video game industry will be presented, with related content posted on webpages specifically designed for the project and promoted via the Embassies' and Consulates' social media.
Brazil Games is the export program created by the Brazilian Independent Game Companies Association, ABRAGAMES, in partnership with Apex-Brasil, the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency. Our goal is to promote the Brazilian Indie Game industry internationally, developing new business opportunities for our companies. The Brazil Games Program also promotes Brazil as the hub for business in Latin America and invites buyers, investors, and publishers for BIG Festival, Brazil's Independent Games Festival, the most important international indie games festival, and the hub for international business in Latin America.
