Jequi's Dream also helps the NGO Cáritas Diocesana of Araçuaí to build water cisterns to the people who live on the Valley of Jequitinhonha.
Jequi is a little boy who needs to collect as much water as possible to help his mother Jandira and his younger brother Joel to survive the drought of Jequitinhonha valley. Anywhere Jequi passes through, that place regain health and bloom again, and little by little, the dream of a new valley grow.
- You will control two characters in the game: The lizard, in the left corner of the image, and Jequi, in the right.
- Rubinho do Vale and Friends are composers from Jequitinhonha Valley. They had supported the project by giving the rights of using their songs in the game.
- The game visuals was developed from handpainted watercolors to better capture the essence of the handicraft made in the Jequitinhonha Valley region.
