The Indie Dev Grant

Blinkman


Who are you ?

We are three painfully self-aware Americans working in Montreal’s game industry, saddled with absurd amounts of debt from earning degrees in Game Development.

The band has been game jamming together for over 3 years and we have meshed our skills into a well-oiled game design machine. Our names aren’t as important as our goal: to ferment the growing indie revolution in whatever way we can.

What project will the Indie Dev Grant be helping you complete?

Blinkman was the band’s senior year project and we poured our souls into the game for 7 months.  In the end we had a vertical slice of a dystopian world run by a benevolent sociopathic AI. The player travels the AI’s booby-trapped machine world using a short range teleport. This is a platformer with no weapons, no attack, and few enemies. You are a rat in a machine maze.

While Blinkman remains a student project with some rough edges in its execution, we have continued to grow exceptionally as designers. We found ourselves with a prototype practically sparking with potential – we  want the chance to catch that lightning in a bottle before it burns out.
