I don't recall anyone here being from brazil these days (an older member was, I think?), but I'm trying to get somebody to help me interview Tec Toy. I don't think there's ever been a real interview with them in english!

Let me know if you have the hot portuguese infos.

I'm pretty sure Just A Person is Brazilian, and he still comes here from time to time. There were also a Portuguese poster whose nick escapes me now... IkariLoona, maybe?

Ah, Charles Prophony is from Brazil, also, if I'm not mistaken.

Sent an e-mail too just for the sake of it now that I just read about this - I'm curious to see how the differences in the Brazillian releases are covered, since I remember a few from old gme mags that got here before there were actual proper portuguese game mags.

Yeah, you´re right, I´m from Brazil too.

Tec Toy... They represented which company, again? I don't remember if it was Sega or Nintendo (although I'm almost sure it was Sega; the old times when Master System and Sega Genesis/Mega Drive had national games - kinda...).

From what I understand, IkariLoona already tried to contact Tec Toy, right? Let's hope they answer...

It was Sega... good times when they released some wacky hacks of adventure games using characters from "Turma da Mônica"(imagine Mickey Mouse on US or Doraemon in Japan... you got the idea) and some portuguese-translated games like phantasy star... They even sponsored part of a TV Show with kids playing alex kidd and gallahad in a type of a mini championship...

Hey JAP(cool coincidence...?), where do you live? Maybe we can chit-chat in MSN, icq or whatever someday.

Yeah, I remember!! Turma da Mônica no Castelo do Dragão (something like "Mônica's gang in the Dragon's Castle"); it wasn't an original game, though. I remember reading it was based into another game, with the only difference being the characters being replaced.

For those who don't know Turma da Mônica, it is a really popular comic book in Brazil. The main characters are four kids: Mônica is a girl with big teeth (but never tell her this) and she's incredibly strong; Cebolinha is a boy that can't spell the letter "R" and has just five spiky hair strings in his head (he also wants to take Mônica's spot as the "king of the street", although Mônica herself doesn't seem to bother about this title); Cascão is a boy who has never taken a shower or bath or even washed his hands in his whole life and is very scared of water (he's also Cebolinha's best friend and often helps him in his plans to defeat Mônica); and finally Magali is Mônica's best friend and she eats a lot (and by a lot, I mean A LOT!!), but still manages to be slim. Of course there are other characters.

Charles, as impossible as it may sound, I have no ICQ or MSN number/account... I do have e-mail and Orkut, though. If there's no problem about it, sure, it would be great to chit-chat someday! I'm from Sorocaba, SP, by the way; what about you?

It was Brandon I e-mailed for any translating help he migh need - like I said, I did it for the heck of it, since it seems others have been doing it too.
Actually Turma da Mónica was one of the games I remembered and mentioned in the e-mail, but didn't know was adapted from another game.

Yes, they were from the Wonder Boy series(the sms had something like 2 or 3 games and one to genesis).

But eventually they started to develop the game by themselves, starting from scratch(erm, I think), like duke nukem 3d and Woodpecker for genesis and Street Fighter 2 for sms.

Not even close. It's a just a hack from another game, Ghost House, IIRC.

Tec Toy did made some games from scratch too, like Férias Frustradas do Pica Pau, a (licensed?)Woody Woodpecker adventure game and the Brazilian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Show do Milhão. They've also made a SMS port of Street Fighter II' too.

Yeah, another Brazilian lurker here.

There're some developers, but very few of them have resources to publish PC games, which are generally sold outside Brazil (as every attempt to sell games here has been hampered by piracy, among other things). One example could be Deer Hunter 2005, published by Atari, but almost unknown by Brazilian gamers. Said developers mostly prefer to concentrate on simple online/webgames and mobile gaming.

Game developing on consoles has been quite an oddball here. As Master System and Mega Drive/Genesis are (still) being sold here without cartridge slots, some simple games were produced, meant to be bundled with the console.
Apparently, one random developer managed to get a DS devkit, but we haven't seen anything on it yet.

There was Ignis which managed to release a MMORPG with brazillian culture references named Erinia, but the system was completely broken, the leveling took ages and even among these problems, somehow they got a xbox sdk in those days, but no other word after that.

Surprisingly it seems they keep with the servers and still developing the game nowadays.

And there is other softhouses like Hoplon with Taikodom(a massive rpg with spaceships, the so called mini-eve online), Oniria(they released some games in germany with Caipira games as a publisher), FourX(same as Oniria).

I visited their places some times and had the chance to see how they were working, and apart of some heaty rivalry sometimes, they tried to maintain contact with each other to exchange some know-how and even projects if one of them couldn't keep it on the track. But the biggest problem I've seem on all of the groups is the big projects. There were cases where a group of nine people were trying to develop the next Final Fantasy, a group of three thinking about making the next Warcraft, etc.

Sometimes we can hear some good, solid ideas among these, but there's no interest from the Brazilian market, and the good professional always try to go abroad and commonly they get a good and well payed job somewhere else.

Funny that I had read this hg101 article just a few days ago. Scroll down for the Mônica stuff.
There's a mention to chapulin'ed Ghost House too.

And let's not forget what is probably the best fighting game ever released (even though it's not an official game): STREET CHAVES!!! Such a pity that Pópis isn't a fighter in this game, though...

Heh, I wonder how popular is El Chavo del Ocho in the USA...

Here in Brazil, it has been aired on television for decades (yup, not years, decades), and the owner of the TV channel that airs this series (in Brazil it's called "Chaves") doesn't even air all the episodes (we know the channel HAS most of the episodes, but some of them were never aired in all these decades).

Yet, it's still probably one of the most watched TV series in here! It's so popular that "Chaves" already had toys, a comic book, and other products. Plus, every time that "Chaves" was taken off this channel, the ratings fell quite impressibly. Actually, I guess it is the TV program with the best ratings in this channel (although nowadays they have a quite shallow Mexican teen soap opera, that became popular as well).

Popular enough to have Chavo del 8 shirts at Hot topic ;(.

Beside that depressing fact, a lot of US spanish based networks still broadcast the show. I use to watch it religiously when my parents use to send me to Nicaragua to visit my relatives.

I think most americans don't know of it, but anyone who watches Telemundo or any other spanish network has at least caught a glimpse. I always thought it was kind of stupid.
