NEW VERSION AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD – Platforms: PC, Mac and Linux (free)

A couple of Kaxinawá twins were conceived by anaconda Yube in dreams and inherited his special powers. A young hunter and a small artisan, throughout the game, go through a series of challenges to become, respectively, a healer (Mukaya) and a master of drawings (kene). In this journey, they will gain skills and knowledge of their ancestors, the animals, plants and spirits; enter into communication with the visible and invisible beings of the forest (yuxin), to become, finally, real human beings (Huni Kuin).
