What's Cooking? - August 26, 2016
By Stephan Reilly
Sadly, this will be my last blog post for Red Meat Games for now. The amazing interns hired by Red Meat Games were a part of the Canada Summer Jobs program which ends today, August 26th. Red Meat Games and Blot Interactive hired a total of 12 interns over the summer who did some amazing work. Looking forward Red Meat is still prepping for the launch of Bloxiq VR, both PAX West and Fan Expo and more conventions in the Fall. After Bloxiq VR’s launch attention will be turned back to the two VR titles currently in development. So without further adieu, here’s what’s cooking!
Goodbye Interns :’(
It’s hard to believe three months is already over. The interns are such a diverse and wonderful group of students spanning several different schools and programs, varying backgrounds and interests and representing the best and brightest of artists and designers. Our interns contributed so much to our varying projects from mobile to virtual reality. We’re very excited for the future of these students and so thankful for their contributions to Red Meat Games’ awesome games!
Kitchener Centre MP Raj Saini Visited the Studio!
We were honoured to have Kitchener Centre’s Member of Parliament Raj Saini (@RajSainiMP) come to our studio to meet our team and see the students benefiting from the Canada Summer Jobs program. We also got Raj to try virtual reality! He played our upcoming puzzle title Bloxiq VR and he was quite impressed. He took a tour of our studio and spoke to our CEO Keith Makse. He learned about the video game industry and what really goes into the development of a game. We were very thankful for the opportunity to speak with Mr. Saini and he’s welcome back anytime!
Last Minute Convention Planning!
We’re less than a week out from PAX West and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re so eager to show our fans how far First Impact has come in a short few months and how awesome Bloxiq looks in VR! We also have a booth at FanExpo in Toronto so be sure to stop by and say hello!
BloxiqVR Launches Next Week!
BloxiqVR will be launching on Steam and the HTC Vive on August 30, 2016! We’re stoked to finally have our first VR project out the door with many more coming in the coming years…
It’s been an absolute delight working for Red Meat Games this past summer writing these blog posts and I hope to write more in the future. Be sure to keep up with the studio on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and be sure to check out our Twitch stream every Wednesday at 2pm EST over on twitch.tv/redmeatplays. The future of Red Meat Games and the VR industry is bright and as always… Red Meat!
