The Montreal-based indie game incubator that we first reported about in November has unveiled the first five teams it will help get started.

Five new teams from throughout Canada will receive "shared office space, development tools, and access to a roster of world-class mentors who provide coaching in areas critical to game development and commercialization" through the program.

The five projects, quoted directly from Execution Labs, are as follows:
-Crankshaft Mobile, from Montreal, is developing a Rogue-like top-down brawler.

-Pixel Crucible, also out of Montreal, is building a hybrid adventure/management fantasy game.

-Lightning Rod Games, from Toronto, is planning a mid-core “evil genius” game that is a mix of Flight Control and Plants vs. Zombies.

-Miscellaneum, from Montreal, is working on The Firemasters, a blazing 3D side scrolling action game in which you play each member of a four-person firefighting team on Mars.

-Imaginary Games, relocating from Vancouver, is creating a Tim Burtonesque social card game about a mysterious graveyard carnival.
