BIG Festival 2022 has started. From July 7th to 10th, the São Paulo Expo will host one of the largest gaming, creation, business and networking events in Latin America. The event has an extensive program for both those who work on the games and those who are just fans.

One of BIG’s most popular and traditional attractions is the Brazilian Panorama: an area with 30 independent games, created by Brazilians, of different genres and styles. You can try them out at no extra cost and even chat with the developers.

O Canaltech tested some of these games and selected five titles that cannot be missed at BIG Festival 2022. Check:

5. Sasá: Danger Has a Microphone (Estarta Estúdio)


Beat’em up game (as Streets of Rage or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge) which will evoke a lot of nostalgia for those who watched the morning TV shows of the 1980s. In the story, children’s presenter Sasa is kidnapped by her assistant Silveira, and you all have to “fix” her to save her.

What caught our attention the most were references to memes and Brazilian culture: we saw a reference to Zeca Pagodinho, yellow Brazil, and even a Betty joke (“I’m Betty too!”). So, despite the more retro look, those connected to Internet jokes should also have a lot of fun.

Sasa: ​​Danger has a microphone It’s not out yet, but here’s a demo for PC and Mac.

4. Bready: A Breakfast Adventure (Anothxr Game Studio)


It tells the story of a cookie that really wants to be your breakfast. This is a casual game for mobile phones with a similar proposition

angry birds

: The player must throw bread from the toaster and bubbles containing food while avoiding obstacles and interacting with scenario objects.

The game has 250 levels and it gets more and more difficult as the player progresses. It will be possible to customize your toaster and bun with different skins that can be purchased with in-game coins or real money.

Bready: A Breakfast Adventure It will be released for iOS and Android at the end of August.

3. Pocket Courage (Statera Studio/PixelHeart)


Anyone who loves fighting games must try this one. Pocket CourageInspired by successes such as Street Fighter and The king of fighters, with 2D graphics and Pixel Art. Despite the cute appearance, which is very reminiscent of us Chibi Japanese, the game has a huge variety of combinations that require a lot of dedication from the player to master.

In total, there are seven different characters, each with a nationality and basic element (such as earth, fire or air). Mark for the best animations that light up the eyes for beauty and smoothness.

Pocket Courage There’s no release date yet, but you can download the demo for PC via Steam here .

2. Devil Inside Us: Roots of Evil (Mr. Skull Game Studio/QUByte)


The Devil Within Us: The Roots of Evil is a first-person, narrative psychological horror game. You control a priest named August Heiler who is called upon to exorcise a house of paranormal activity. However, things are worse than they seem: the story begins in 1984, but continues for more than 30 years. Now, at the age of 74, you must return to the scene and solve the mystery.

Interesting detail: who voices Father Augustus is Lauro Fabiano, who has already voiced characters such as Dumbledore. Harry Potterand Uncle Phil, Dan The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. This is a good opportunity to get some scares straight from the big festival.

The Devil Within Us: The Roots of Evil Available now for PC via Steam here and coming soon to PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

1. PiraCrash! (MadMozer)


This is a great game to destroy friendships. PiraCrash! This is the title in style party, in which two players face each other in quick minigames. The gameplay varies a lot in each arena, but in all of them you can shoot, defend, and perform special attacks.

The game is quite fun, with colorful visuals and fluid gameplay. It’s also worth praising the heroes who are… rubber ducks. The soundtrack covers the game and makes the argument even more aggressive.

PiraCrash! Available for PC via Steam here.
