Get Water! gameplay

Get Water! is a sidescrolling endless runner with a message. The main character, Maya, has to leave school to get water for her family, and the player’s role is to help her in this task. Maya’s story is told through gameplay, animation, and different skills she learns to make her task easier and faster.

The game has been in development since last summer, and the launch date is looming close. To increase their anxiety, the team wants all 5a7’rs and other interested folks to come and break their game. So come and play the game, and see how badly you can break it! There will be refreshments, and a prize for whoever finishes the game first. Or breaks it the worst.
Where: Technoculture, Art, and Games (TAG)/Hex Game Lab, EV 11.425, 1515 St. Catherine O.

When: Thursday, March 7th, 5pm-7pm
