Press / Business contact:
Bragi Estúdios is a game development company from Salvador, Brazil. We believe in the power of narrative, immersion, fun and unique moments that games can provide.
Irlan Nascimento was only 12 years old when, in 2011, he entered a Brazilian forum about GameMaker, where he became fascinated by the possibility of creating his own games using just a computer. During his teenage years, he taught himself how to develop his first games through YouTube videos and tutorials.
In 2015, he adopted the pseudonym "Irlan Bragi" as a tribute to the Norse god of music, communication, and poetry. Bragi is the protector of troubadours, and the description of the god is always portrayed as a slim and pacifist man, unlike the other gods of the Norse pantheon. However, the main identification that Irlan had, was actually because Bragi was accused by Lokiof being an "effeminate" god, and Irlan proudly identifies himself as a gay man since the end of his teenage years.Foundation
In 2018, Iratan Filho, Irlan's brother, came up with the idea of developing a game with 100 riddles, of varied themes, with an award for the first player to decipher all the levels. With the help of their father, Iratan Nascimento, the two brothers created 100NHAS, the first game by Bragi Estúdios, which gave rise to the company’s creation for its launch.
Since then, Bragi Estúdios has developed different lines of action, including:Games & Education:
We teach game development processes through courses, lectures, and workshops, as well as introductory game development experiences using GameMaker and Scratch for children and teenagers. We also have a partnership with Inicie Educação since 2021, where we develop educational games and gamified experiences, covering a wide range of topics.Art & Technology:
We collaborate with various artists, such as Diego Araúja and the singer-songwriter Nikima, to develop artistic experiences.Games & Entertainment:
