OUR VISION

THE JOURNEY

2017

THE FOUNDATION

The first concepts of what would become Aoca were established in 2016, but in 2017 the team officially begins its journey.
2018

ÁRIDA I - DEVELOPMENT

Between 2017 and 2018, Aoca was focused on
what we called "Backlands Project". ÁRIDA as a product was born from the idea of ​​creating a series of games.
2019

ÅRIDA I - PC LAUNCH

With a repercussion above our expectations, we received more than 15 awards and mentions, reaching players worldwide.
A more consistent vision of the company was born this year.
2020

ACCELERATION AND MATURITY

We participated in some acceleration processes.
It is worth mentioning first Vale do Dendê and then Google for Startups Brazil through the Black Founders Fund (where we received an equity-free investment).
A year to structure Aoca as a business.
2021

THE MOBILE JOURNEY

We were selected to participate in the Indie Games Accelerator,
an international accelerator program from Google Play.
Mobile was not an initial plan, but this was the year that we understood more clearly the potential of this movement.
2022

ÅRIDA I - ANDROID AND IOS LAUNCH

A year to understand the mobile world. We released versions
for the main stores and now we are much more confident to plan the future of the series in the mobile world.
2023

ÅRIDA SERIES: NEXT LEVEL

A year to further position ÁRIDA in the entertainment industry:
we will launch the console versions of ÁRIDA I, in addition to the multiplatform launch of ÁRIDA II: Rise of the Brave.
