QUARTOMUNDO is a 3D Animation and Game Development Studio based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We make games for people having fun, of course, but also for telling stories that relate to meaningful life issues.

At this very moment, we believe that intolerance is a relevant subject we all should talk about, so we decided to develop a sous-like metroidvania around the story of Sephius, the first and only hybrid in an universe divided between two ancient rival strains: Pales and Darks.
