Flying platforms, colorful enemies, magical weapons and baffling physics. All of that with background music that follows the hero throughout his saga. This is a short summary of what you’ll see in Songs for a Hero - the game, which pays tribute to several classics from the 8 and 16 bits era, like The Legend of Zelda and Wonder Boy in Monster Land, while at the same time making fun of the cliches from the gaming universe.
One of the project’s key features is its dynamic and funny soundtrack - written and performed by the Castro Brothers - that narrates the player’s feats and responds to his inputs, becoming a key element in the story’s progression. Expect all of that plus puzzles, special items, epic battles and everything an awesome video game needs.

Only on the premium version
Songs for a Hero is an animated series created in January 2012 and that has, up until now, 4 episodes and over 4 million views. The project was conceived by Marcos Castro and Matheus Castro, the Castro Brothers, that have a YouTube channel with more than one million subscribers and more than 100 million views all together. Since 2011, the duo produces vlogs, musicals, animations, clips and sketches, always focusing on at least one of these three pillars: humor, music and pop/nerd culture.
The game was financed through a crowdfunding campaign on Catarse in September 2014, that broke several records at the time.
The game was born through a partnership between the Castro Brothers and Dumativa studio, that has developed projects that stand out for their gameplay and quality of graphics and soundtrack, such as Dragon Festival.
If you get the game during pre-order, besides getting it for a cheaper price than the release price, you’ll get the following bonuses: original soundtrack for download, digital artbook, a paper toy of the hero that you can print and assemble, the game map and several wallpapers.
You will be able to download the game to your computer through Nuuvem. Additionally, you’ll also be able to activate and download Songs for a Hero through Steam.
