Secret Handshake #28: "Roboteer"­ Game Demo

Who's in need of a cool beverage with a patio full of fun/friendly, and sometimes beautifully awkward creative types? Look no further. Secret Handshake is happening at the Lo Pub on July 18th!

Roboteer Game Demo: Create your own virtual robots at Secret Handshake!

Local indie game developers Alec Holowka and Mickey Blumental will be
demoing Roboteer, a new multi-platform game for desktop, tablet and mobile devices.

Engineer clever robot designs to overcome a variety of challenges, explore your creativity by building a freeform robot and test-driving it in the sandbox mode or pit your creations against your peers in the battle arena.

Roboteer is the result of a collaboration between two local companies. Cogmation’s vision of "making robotics fun and easy" has been combined with Infinite Ammo Inc.’s gaming expertise, resulting in a fun and intuitive gameplay experience. Both companies have been featured in the New Media Manitoba showcase.

Alec Holowka is an award winning indie-game developer and music composer. Aquaria has won the Independent Games Festival Grand Prize and has been recently inducted to the iPad AppStore Hall of Fame.

Mickey Blumental has recently moved to Winnipeg from London, UK where he worked on many award-winning entries in big franchises including Final Fantasy, Resident Evil and Project Gotham Racing.
