Careto

Careto is a 2D puzzle-platformer in development for the mobile platform and possibly PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

This project started out as a solo academic project, from the studio MA Studios, with the aim of using a form of interactive communication to bring a century-old Portuguese tradition to the younger generations. Representing not only the Carnival of the Caretos de Podence, but also the obstacles that have existed to keep this tradition alive over the years.

The game follows all the steps of the Careto ritual: build the suit, collect rattles, provoke people on the street and complete the great sculpture of Careto built all the Carnivals for the Burning of the Entrudo.

Careto is still in development but you can always follow all the news and his development process through IndieDB and Twitter.
