Art + Games World Tour is a project by Isabelle Arvers. The aim of this world tour is to promote diversity in terms of content and also in terms of who is producing content and from where… in order to be able to tell an other story of video games, outside the main territories of the global market.

During A MAZE. / Berlin - Total Digital Isabelle will take us to 3 different continents and speak with various creators.

A brief review on some of the studio creations and their repercussions in the social networks and the mass media

Mateo Amaral
we were humanity

Live AV set made with ableton live and unity 3d. It is an abstract sci-fi narrative that tells the story of a future where Artificial Intelligences merged with plants and try to remember their ancestors: the extinct humanity. Combining 3D representations of natural landscapes, the imaginary of cyber-space, primitive digital aesthetics, manipulated samples of ancestral rituals and contemporary popular culture, I seek to reflect on the artificial minds that are being born right now.

Perra Force

Perra Force is a 4 player beat em up about an all-girl gang who face off against a multitude of enemies that embody all the stereotypes of patriarchy.

Daniela Fernández
Presentation of the project ITA.
Ita is a 2D platform video game in which a young girl comes across a magical being, called Yasí Yateré, who kidnaps children that refuse to take a nap or siesta after lunch. He takes her to the Realm of Eternal Night, which is inhabited by all the beings of the legends of the Litoral, inherited from Guaraní culture. Ita must find her way home through the Portal of Dreams, where the rivers cross. To get there she will have to escape from the beings of the night, who want to steal her spiritual light.

Game e Arte (Tainá & Jaderson)

A decolonial, popular and black vision for games in Brazil
We will briefly present our way of creating games under a decolonial and popular vision. That puts the black person as the protagonist of their narratives within the language of digital games. How to create your game using accessible tools and a view parallel to the axis of the main stream game industry.
