Today there are more than 20 million people in Brazil working on home office basis. According to a recent research conducted by the Getulio Vargas Foundation, a renowned Brazilian higher education institution and think tank, 30% of the companies are expected to maintain the virtual work format, which entails working nearly full time away from the office place.
Some of the biggest challenges for virtual teamwork and remote working teams include maintaining a strong company culture and building real human connections. Digital games demand interaction and participation, two valued qualities that now characterize much of the lives of remote workers.
Expansão, a Brazilian company founded in 1997 based in Sao Paulo and specialized in building innovative learning experiences (please find also Serious Game For Digital Transformation Capability Wins Gold Medal In Serious Play Competition), has just released the mobile version of its award-winning Serious Game Brave to the Sea, the first VR business game created and deployed in Brazil.

Their new title, Brave Mobile, was conceived as a multiplayer experience to strengthen virtual teams’ skill sets. With home office becoming part of the “new normal”, team members can now also connect remotely and immerse themselves in the game no matter where they are.
Available for Android and iOS on Google Play and App Store, Brave Mobile is a multiplayer and multilanguage game that allows 3-5000 simultaneous players in teams of three or four. VR is optional in the mobile version.
