Created by a team of OCAD and U of T students, this is a game for anyone who wants to actually be the Kraken. Up to four players control pirate ships or massive sea monsters in a capture-the-flag type of scenario. Pirates seek treasure chests, while the monsters seek pirates. Pirates use grappling hooks to collect treasure and move around the map, while the sea monster’s tentacles give it similar abilities.
Another OCAD and U of T combination creation, this game takes inspiration from the schoolyard game of tag. The multiplayer game requires players to step on each others’ shadows trying to steal them. They get smaller as they are stepped on, and the light in the arena moves around so the shadows are always changing. Players can also hide in the shadows of the environment, which protects them from other players. There’s also a “Freeze” power-up that locks players in place.
Can you bring light back to the world? That’s the plan in Chrominance, where monsters and magical colour changing structures dot the surreal landscape. The single player must explore the world using colour and stealth to navigate, and discover how to restore peace. Collecting prism fragments spread throughout the land will brighten the world and destroy the monsters.
Created by a team called Awkward Interactions from Algonquin College, this steampunk-inspired game is set in an open world flying city. You play as the title character, harnessing electricity to vanquish his foe. Shot from a first-person point-of-view, players can customize different spells into more than 300 combinations, and promise some emergent gameplay, letting user adapt to their preferred play style.
