The highlight of Brazil in the creation of games is proved by recent results: Team Signum Games from Brazil was the champion in the Game Design category in the 2011 Imagine Cup competition, a sort of Olympics of software development promoted by Microsoft.

In recent years, Brazilians have developed numerous titles for the PC, social networking, advergames (games for advertising) and games for mobile phones and tablets, as the iPhone and iPad. In addition, some developers have look at the mother lode of the market, which is to produce games for consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
