"El Tango de la Muerte" ('The Tango of Death') it's like a "Osu" on a dance floor. I just wanted to do something beautifull with a big cultural footprint. The player controls a dance couple who has to move to the rhythm of the music. Each song represents a level of the game and adds new features. The game is set in the Argentina of the 20's on the world of Tango, music and dance. The story is about a boy who learns to dance Tango, a love from childhood that he leaves and meets years after an exile. It is a personal project, built by a person, with the exception of music. YIRA is the name of an awesome band that puts the music into this game. They took tango to modern days.

The game finale... The seventh chapter will despair the tango dance lovers! Muhahahahaha! (evil laughter)

Cats!

Yes cats.

The lovers return to the house were they first dance, is now an abandoned house that's has been talked over by cats. So they dance, they dance through his childhood memories, the lost time and cats.

Dance and cats


And then is this... thing.

About feelings and game development.

When working on the final chapter I got a little sad (I have heard of this before... but never happened until now); I was doing the last level, no more songs, no more soap opera twists and characters... :(

how sad


The game story starts with humor, then tragedy and drama appears but in the end the humor and romance arise again. I like the ride.

come to mama


And I felt kind of the same, maybe not at the same time, but my ride was like: happy first, then the hapiness starts to get dull, and when I was about to end the game, I felt sad. Two years shaping something make you love it and care for it. I was sad becasue I am going to miss work in on it. I will miss the characters I have created (they Live).

But then I finish it. And I was happy again. I still am. The kind of joy that you can carry on, that makes you grow.
I like this feeling, and I hope that you feel it too when working on your games.

And my conscience got calm because my characters will live again, in other hands, for others to love and hate, and his stories will be told when playing. So, don't stop playing, give life to the stories and carry them up, because they will carry you trough the experience they live (despite the cats).
