Introducing MarchQuest®: The Real-World Roleplaying Game™
Walk, Hike or Run through the real world to be the Hero of MarchQuest.
With MarchQuest, every real world step you take unlocks immersive story and gameplay on your iPhone. MarchQuest’s unique design integrates storytelling with a role-playing game experience complete with animated 3D characters, Triple-A quality voice-over and choices that matter. MarchQuest also tracks and gamifies fitness through distance, time, pace, steps and calories burnt.
Match Point is a frenetic couch competition game for 2 – 4 contenders. Tether, kick, block, and counter the ball into the opposing team’s goal as you hop around in the newfound gravity of this modern take on a familiar arena. This game from member team Jolly Crouton Media is out now on Steam and itch.io!
Introducing Project Resurgence, a narrative-driven roleplaying game set in a unique fantasy/sci-fi world. Begin by customizing your character’s background, skillset, and appearance; then delve into a gritty, highly reactive world. In this mysterious land, brimming with danger, there are no right or wrong answers: only choice and consequence. You must explore, sneak, con, and fight to survive. And maybe, just maybe, Dehrgada will remember your name.
Splotches a tricksy puzzle game about exploding paint. Mix together the primary colors red, yellow, and blue in any order to make a Brownsplosion. Spread the colors across conveyor belts, through portals, over filters, and into buckets on your quest to destroy the mythical Rainbow Orb. This game from Jolly Crouton Media is coming soon!
Learning is the most important for game development. We hold sessions to teach our members new technologies that are emerging and how they can incorporate it into their projects.
Experience, stories and networking. We invite guest speakers to come in and give us their story. What are the Do’s and Dont’s for publishing a game? Or how do I get into the industry? We have just the people for you to talk to.
Best way to learn how to understand game development is to play others and learn why its a success. We give members a new game and hold a discussion on why its good or bad. What is good design? What was it built in? How could it be better?
Putting your skills to the test! We hold a number of Game Jam’s throughout the year and have our members team up to make a game under a strict time line. We will provide a theme and you can choose to team up or go solo to see what game you can make in a short period of time. Maybe it will be the next big thing!
