This Friday we are hosting our good friends from Lantana Games to come present some of their work and possibly to let us play prototypes of some of their new stuff. Here is a bit from their website about their studio:
Lantana Games™ is an independent game development studio located in the greater Boston, Massachusetts area. We are currently focusing on PC and home console game development for digital distribution. While we do not focus on developing one specific kind of game or for one specific audience, we uphold every game we make to the same standards:
* Innovative but well executed gameplay mechanics.
* Focus on user friendliness and shallow learning curves.
* Unique artistic presentations.
* If we don't love our games, neither will you.
Lantana Games™ released two games in 2009, the expressive and experimental The Longest Night and the addictive rhythm/shooter Zombie Slaughter Tour 2009. 2010 is already looking like a game-filled year for Lantana Games™, with the release of the short prototype game Hunter's Gulch, a Western-style shooter, and it's very likely not the only prototype we will release for free this year.
Recently, Lantana Games™ announced its biggest project to date, Children of Liberty™, a stealth platformer that takes place on the eve of the American Revolution in Boston. We do not have a release date yet, but more info is always on the way.
Festivities start at 4PM, so come on by our TV Lounge this Friday to meet Lantana.
