Game by former GI Postdoctoral Fellow, Brian Cullen, featured by CBC Kitchener-Waterloo

Monday, August 31, 2020

An article by CBC Kitchener-Waterloo features a game by Brian Cullen, former Games Institute postdoctoral fellow (PDF), and his team at Fluxscopic, a Kitchener-based game studio.

Mayhem in Single Valley is an action-adventure video game "full of twists and radioactive squirrels", available on steam. Players take the role of Jack, a teenager who has just started the apocalypse in his hometown.

The CBC article spotlights a particular chapter of Mayhem in a Single Valley called Confessions where the goal is to stop the spread of a virus. Though the CBC writes that this chapter was originally imagined by Cullen five years ago, it is particularly poignant during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Cullen, Director at Fluxscopic, was a PDF with the Games Institute and IMMERSe in 2012-2013. His IMMERSe research involved sound and stereoscopic 3D and imagery in video games. Explore his research in our IMMERSe compendium.
