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.
