The 25 studios set to appear at GDC 2022 represent nearly every corner of the video game spectrum, whether that be creating “roguelike-like” co-op management games like Spacelines from the Far Out by Coffenauts, breaking new ground in the sports genre with the world’s first Jiu-Jitsu game like BEJJ: Jiu-Jitsu by Smash Mountain Studio, or Co-Development teams like Kokku Games partnering on massive Triple-A IPs like Horizon Zero Dawn and the highly-successful sequel Horizon Forbidden West. From in-house creation to external development, design, consulting, and more across every platform from PC to VR and mobile, these studios really showcase not just the incredible variety to be found in Brazil’s game industry, but also the talent, dedication, and creativity in one of the world’s fastest growing development scenes.
