Playcrafting is hosting a weekly World Game Night series every Wednesday to demo and spotlight games and creators from around the world! Games have the power to transcend boundaries and connect people across the globe no matter who they are or where they’re from. Tune in from the comfort of your computer as we take you on a world tour of games. Each week, you’ll meet a lineup of game developers from a different place as they show you their latest and greatest. We’ll have time for Q&A each week and will feature some surprises along the way!
This Week’s Theme: MADE IN PHILADELPHIA
Join us in the city of brotherly love to showcase games and creators from Philly!
Follow along with us: @Playcrafting #WorldGameNight
EARTHNIGHT by Cleaversoft
EarthNight is a painting brought to life and a love letter to classic arcade games. Dragons have taken over the Earth, and humanity has fled to space. You must help Stanley and Sydney skydive back to Earth while careening across the backs of massive, snake-like dragons as they soar high above the planet, all while an original chiptune soundtrack pounds away in the background.
FLING TO THE FINISH by SplitSide Games
Fling to the Finish is a cooperative racing game where teammates are tethered together by a stretchy elastic rope. Get up close and personal with your partner as you share a controller to maneuver two characters bouncing, rolling, and flinging their way to the finish line!
DIGITAL JANITORS by Tired Turtle Games
Digital Janitors is a desktop defense game in the style of an old-school PC. A hacker has taken your employer’s network hostage, sending malicious files and malware to all the company computers. Playing as the IT Administrator for Merter Corporation, you must go to each computer in the company and excise the virus, beating back the hacker. As you beat back the hacker threat, truths about what your employer does will be revealed and players will have to question the validity of “just following orders” in an unethical corporation. Digital Janitors is a fun action game, but it’s also asking whether it is better to struggle for sweeping drastic change, or work slowly from within to fix institutional injustices and right wrongs.
