Xilo

Abstract:
“Xilo” is a tribute to culture and folklore from the Northeatern region in Brazil. It tells the story of backwoodsman Biliu who, in order to save his family from a serious disease, must collect parts of holy xylographs facing challenges and Brazilian legends such as Mula-sem-cabeça, Curupira, and Boitatá, among others. The aesthetics of this 2-D action game is inspired by xylographs, as well by the use of popular rhymes to tell the story, and its soundtrack presents forró music by the Cabruêra band.
