Description

The name Doti-Doti no Gaea is a mix of “trash” (in Nigerian pidgin) with the name of the protagonist, a hipster personification of planet Earth. Created as a playable theory, this game represents a system based in production, consumption and recycling that needs to be kept in balance, otherwise nature will be destroyed. The player helps Gaea to send residues to be recycled, but the exaggerated consumption and wrongly disposal may result in a uncontrollable garbage situation, increasing the difficulty of the game. The player must solve this imminent imbalance to transform society and save Gaea’s life.

History

The game was developed on a partnership with BlankTape for the exhibit REVERTA - Arte e Sustentabilidade, which took place in May 2015 at OCA. Over 40 thousand people passed by, 16 thousand from those being students. The game was also a finalist of BIG Festival 2016 in the Best Environmental Game.

Features

  • An arcade playable theory
  • An environmental message passed through gameplay
  • Art made with a mix of paper collage and digital art

About Loud Noises

Boilerplate
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.
