Description

Loud Noises is a “gang” of game makers based in São Paulo (Brazil). Since 2013 we got a (questionable) reputation from our different projects such as Headblaster, a freeware PC arcade game, and Doti-Doti no Gaea, a mobile educational game about recycling. Our members are also active within the local game developer community, where our members have organized events (SPjam and SPIN) and a portrait series about the people involved in the game development scene (Retratos Independentes). We were the winners of a government grant in 2014 by SPCine (a company of movies and visual arts controlled by the São Paulo government). Since then, we have been working on a turn-based RPG inspired by a cartoon show. This game is estimated to be released in 2018.

History

Early history

The studio emerged in 2013 after the Global Game Jam when three friends (Asai, Diego and José) were happy working together and created a small game, Space Castaway. They decided to continue making games together, and working on their free time, they continued the work and launched Headblaster. It reached out to those seeking for a retro-arcade experience and gathered almost eight thousand plays and over 30 thousand views on Gamejolt.

After that

In 2014, LAUT was developed during the Goethe Game Jam, and it was chosen as finalist to be displayed at the A Maze/Berlin. During the same year, the seed for another project - Glitch Gazette - was born. We joined efforts with others to launch this project. We asked two questions to a total of developers, journalists, academics, critics and really anyone involved with games and game culture and gathered the answers with a Twine game (which you can experiment on our itch.io). In 2015 we developed a playable theory about recycling for the Reverta exhibit called Doti-Doti no Gaea. This game was played by over 21 thousand visitors and it was finalist during the exhibit. After a few months dormant, Loud Noises came back and is currently been working on a turn-based RPG inspired by a cartoon show. This game is estimated to be released in 2018. Additionally, we are also working on an unannounced project, to be released also in late 2017.
