while I was Brazil Game Show 2022, our late BGS, I was able to experience a game developed or in development by Brazilian studios. Games of the most diverse genres, visual styles and platforms, as well as being at different stages of development.
Here we’re going to list the main experiences I had at the fair, without ordering “best” or anything like that. The purpose here is to publicize the projects that caught my attention during the six days I spent at BGS, trying out games and talking to their developers. But enough talk, let’s get to the games!
We start our list with Drakantos which is an MMORPG style game. We spoke to Higor Antunes, game designer and producer from Drakantos, at his booth. The game, which has been in development since March 2022, has a pixelated art style very reminiscent of Tibia, but with much more animation, sound and motion effects.
But the interesting thing about Drakantos is that instead of the player choosing between classes, as is usually the case in MMORPGs in general, here he can choose between specific characters. Something that reminded me a bit of a trace Genshin influence, each character has their own moves and signatures, with 12 already available and plans for 21 before launch. The game is quite challenging and full of interesting mechanics. Drakantos will be released in October 2023 for PC (Steam) and mobile.
