Rodrigo Chips and the Brazilian "studio system"
Rodrigo Chips is has been making games in (and out of) Brazil since 2007 in development studios. His career is a great way to chart the changes and challenges of developing games in Brazil in the studio system and not in the hot new indie ways. From having to build engines from the ground up, doing asset work for Xbox games to creating a huge franchise like Starlit Adventures (the first Brazilian f2p game on PS4) Chips has done it all!
Is Miner Ultra the Brazilian Bubsy?
Don Zelito's patronage of the arts has brought the Miner Ultra series to the world and with it unleashed a creative mind upon the gaming world like no other. In this episode we analyze the output of a man that goes only by Manic Logic and has developed such gems as Super T**s Rush, Miner Ultra Adventures and Super Lula Escape From Prison. Come for the bad video game talk, stay for the references to Santos Dumont and Pepsiman and learn what is a Mineirinho.
Celeste's Brazilian roots
In our first episode, Bruno Dias, Pedro Falcão and Gus Lanzetta talk to Amora B., Pedro Medeiros and Heidy Motta from MiniBoss. The conversation focuses a lot on their work on
the award winning Celeste, but also goes deep into their very unique journey as indie developers in Brazil.
Very good podcast about an unusual point of view of games: from brazil. Recommed it.
