Congratulations to Ian Geraldi and Sofia Mello (Maki) for being this year’s finalists at SBGames Art’s Festival, the largest and most important event on games and digital entertainment in Latin America.
Ian, member of the sound design and programming areas of the lab, brought ‘Conta Gotas’ to the SoundTrack competition. The title is one of the many musical arrangements of the original theme present in the Tamapote game.
Sofia created ‘Indecisão Evolutiva’ and was chosen as a finalist in the Experimentações e Fanart category. Her intention was to mix the cute aspect of the game, the bizarre and horror characteristics seen in Junji Ito’s work with Donguri Kyouwakoku’s pallet scheme to this piece.
We are proud and thankful for their dedication in the making of this project.
The Global Game Jam is an annual distributed game jam when participants gather to develop ideas, form small groups, create new, creative, innovative games, and present them to their peers and the global community, all in a limited time span of 48 hours.
Since 2016, ICAD/Visionlab promotes a jam site at PUC-Rio to offer the opportunity for students to participate in the event. This year we made a movie to document the event.
