February 29 5a7 Symposium

Posted by Carolyn

This week Crankshaft Games will be showing off a pre-alpha version of the coop puzzle-platformer, Party of Sin. We’ll also be throwing an informal good-bye party for Saleem Dabbous to celebrate his last day as the (amazing) TAG Lab Coordinator, so BYOB!

More details below:


Party of Sin:
Become any of the Seven Deadly Sins and battle your way from Hell to
Heaven in Party of Sin. Each Sin has unique powers which are necessary
to solve puzzles and defeat the legions of angels keeping you from
paradise. Play with your friends and use your sinful powers against
friend and foe alike. Party of Sin combines classic game mechanics
into an exciting coop adventure.


Crankshaft Games:
Crankshaft Games is the Montreal-based independent studio that
developed the award winning space-combat simulator Eternal Silence.
With their latest game, Party of Sin, they plan to break accepted
cooperative gaming conventions and provide players with a responsive,
artsy environment.

The Plan:
Come out and play an early pre-alpha version of Party of Sin. Your
feedback will help shape the development of the game as it nears
release. Chat with the developers and learn about the game and their
experience developing it.

Where: Technoculture, Art, and Games (TAG) LAB, EV 11.425, Corner of Guy and St. Catherine O.
When: Wednesday, February 29, 5pm-7pm
Who: Anyone is welcome, please feel free to bring friends or colleagues who might be interested.
What: Playtesting Crankshaft Game’s Party of Sin and a party for TAG Coordinator, Saleem Dabbous.
