The Critical Hit Jam Factory Playtests continue this week! Our exceedingly talented group of jammers are coming at us all with a new set of games that they’ve whipped together in a disturbingly short time frame. The inspiration for this week’s exciting jam theme: Designing a New Sensorium. This Thursday, June 19th, participants of the incubator will wow us with games which experiment with our senses and perceptions. Join us for a unique gaming experience!

Also, in just a few short weeks, TAG and Hexagram will have the pleasure of welcoming Kitfox – a seriously noteworthy local independent games company – as our new developers-in-residence. Before long, they’re going to be much beloved regulars around the labs, but we’ve decided to give all the 5a7 attendees a chance to get to know the people behind Kitfox a little earlier. Join us this week as we welcome them and get to know what they’re all about!

You can find out more about Critical Hit here, and feel free to check out Kitfox’s site here!

Hope to see you all this Thursday!
