While the Brazilians are proud of their progress, including their newfound legal recognition for the game industry, they also recognize how far they have to go in introducing the games of Brazil to the rest of the world. There are more than 1,000 Brazilian game studios with more than 13,000 game developers.

A representative from the mayor’s office of Sao Paolo took the stage first. He recounted how the local government collaborated to bring Gamescom, which runs the Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany, to Sao Paolo to join the existing BIG Festival to make the event bigger and better.

More than 100,000 people are expected this year, said Gustavo Steinberg, CEO of Gamescom Latam, in an interview with GamesBeat. Last year, the show drew 50,000.
