Square Enix Montréal Celebrates Square Jam 2016

Square Enix Montréal Celebrates Square Jam 2016

All ongoing projects temporarily put on hold and experimental working prototypes created as Square Enix Montréal dedicates an entire week to studio-wide game jam.

During one week in September Square Enix Montréal ran its inaugural ‘Square Jam’ – an event where all the studio members assembled into small teams to create a game of their choice focused around the theme of ‘exposed’.

Following a week of intense productivity and fun, the teams submitted a variety of prototype games that reflected Square Enix Montréal’s creative spirit, including projectile reflecting witchery in Aegis; using a mobile phone in the corporate afterlife of Fate, Incorporated; hunting space hunters online in Space Hunter Hunt; and the camera-wielding private detective of Overexposed‘s hotel complex.

Whilst there are no current plans to formally release any of these titles you can watch a short video of these concepts below:
