With the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2022 just around the corner, Brazil Games, the Brazilian Games Export Program, which is carried out by Abragames (Brazilian Games Companies Association) in partnership with ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), today revealed the 25 studios that will showcase at this year’s event. From PC to mobile, puzzlers to roguelikes, single-player, multi-player, and everything in between, the Brazil Games’ stable is set to show off some fabulous titles and put a spotlight on the thriving Brazilian game industry.

Registration for GDC 2022 will open March 14, 2022, and meetings must be booked via the GDC Swapcard.

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 Coffeenauts, 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.

“We are thrilled to get back to GDC. After two years without in-person networking, there is lots to catch up on with our partners,” said Eliana Russi Manager of Brazil Games. “Business should be great as Brazil is bringing 17 studios to San Francisco plus another eight that will attend online.”
