Cai Cai Balão
A game about the balloon world made at DADIU at the Danish Filmschool
Twenty years ago, the skies of Brazil were completely covered by colorful balloons until 1998 where balloons became illegal punished with up to 3 years of prison. To this day, balloon crews are persecuted by police.
Cai Cai Balão is a fast paced parkour-lite racing game in which the player completes intense missions in a fictional urban city in Brazil. The player must escape aggressive police officers, snipers, dogs and other obstacles in order to become the FIRST to catch a giant hot air balloon that will earn him respect from the baloeiro families and status as the most notorious balloon hunter.
The narrative and voice acting have been developed in close collaboration with baloeiros from Brazil.
