Hello and welcome everyone!
We are the Koala Kompany, a student group from Universidade Lusófona in Portugal, and we would like to introduce you to our project: Caapora - Oath of the Forest!
Caapora - Oath of the Forest, which we also refer to simply as Caapora sometimes, is a stealth-based game where we give a chance for the animals of the Amazonian forest to fight back and reclaim their land.
We drew inspiration from a topic that is very close to our hearts: Deforestation. Although climate change's consequences are enormous and affect us all, we wish to give a voice to some of the silent victims of this act. By cutting trees and clearing forested lands excessively, we not only endanger ourselves, but thousands of species, and even other humans, who have lived and cared for those lands for thousands of years.
Deforestation does not only happen in the Amazon, and is a global problem affecting many other millennial forests, but we decided to explore the Amazon Rainforest particularly since it is not only the biggest but also one of the most endangered and recognizable. And as most of the Rainforest is still unexplored, most people are not aware of the effects of destroying its habitats on its unique and distinct fauna.
But without further ado, let us get you better acquainted with Caapora - Oath of the Forest.
- Shapeshift into different animals and use their unique abilities!
- Sneak in and sabotage your enemies and destroy their operation...
- Reclaim and restore the rainforest.
Caapora - Oath of the Forest allows for both Keyboard and Controller, so choose your weapon!
