Project Totem Preview!

If you’ve been keeping up with the blog, you’ve seen that we’re working on a very special livestream this weekend. It’s Extra Life, and we’ll be streaming 24 straight hours for charity. One of the first questions we got after announcing that was, “Well, what games are you going to play?” I’m excited now to finally be able to make an announcement in this regard.TotemPiece52

We’ll be showing a sneak peek of the upcoming game from Press Play, Project Totem! And to make it even better, members of Press Play will be joining us via Skype to answer questions about the game! You may know Press Play from their incredible Xbox One game, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, and their recent Windows Phone release, Tentacles: Enter The Mind. If you’ve played either of these games, you know you’re in for a treat with Project Totem.

Join us beginning at 9:00am Pacific for Extra Life, and be sure to tune in Saturday starting at 11:00am Pacific (6:00pm UTC) on for the Project Totem reveal, and stay tuned for more Extra Life announcements!
