Team Vector is excited to announce it’s participation in this season’s Long Winter series at the Great Hall! Conceived by members of Toronto band Fucked Up, The Long Winter is a series of concerts that incorporate art installation, video games, food vendors and more! Now in it’s second season, we’re pleased to announce that we will be curating games for the January 10th edition of the Long Winter in the new year!
We’re happy to curate games for this installment of the Long Winter Arcade, having shared the curatorial duties for the second season of Long Winter with Bento Miso, Drinkbox Studios, Dames Making Games, and TO Jam; with each group curating for one of the events. For our portion of this series, we’ve decided to bring in games that focus on unique perspectives in the local multiplayer experience. We’re inviting Long Winter attendees to shoot and battle with other players throughout the night, with this assortment of games.
Team Vector will be bringing the following games to the Long Winter Arcade:
Tay Bai Woo: Chopsquares.
Blue Square’s ultimate nemesis Red Square is for reals angry. They face off once and for all in square to square combat, choppin’ each other’s bods mercilessly. They spin through the air, in an endless struggle.
CHOPSQUARES is a small two-player versus game, where each player is a square, a square with a sword on its head. Time slows the closer both squares get. If the sword touches the other square’s body they are dead.
Alex Martin (aka Droqen): Shotguns in the Dark.
A 2 player versus mode game where you fight your opponent in a darkened maze, only the flash of your shotguns reveal your location.
KO-OP Mode (Montreal): Kung Fu Volleyball.
Are you ready for battle? Montreal’s KO-OP Mode brings you a volleyball game unlike you’ve ever seen! Soar through the air and use your Kung Fu Powers to score points against your opponent in this 1 on 1 Kung Fu inspired sports game.
Creative Technologies of Toronto (CTT): Crack-a-Quack.
Crack-a-Quack is a mobile AR game, which pays tribute to the classic duck shooting galleries of old carnivals as well as the classic shooter Duck Hunt for the NES. Instead of a light gun and a television however, visitors to the Long Winter Arcade can download a small app, and use their own phones as the “zapper” while shooting targets on a large projected screen. This game allows for multiple users at the same time, where you can compete with other players to achieve the high score.
