Designers at UMass Amherst have made their first game about a guy who accidentally gets a job at a company whose founder died in the game.
The game, called UMass, will be published in 2017 by developer The Playroom Games.
The game’s first teaser trailer shows a guy, who goes by “Pete,” in his office trying to get an early release of UMass.
Pete, a game designer, and his coworker are in their first day of work when the company’s founder, Michael J. Smith, dies.
That’s when Pete and his coworkers decide to create a game about Smith, and decide to start a Kickstarter to fund their project.
The Playroom Game has already received $7,500 in pledges from backers.
The company is working on a Kickstarter campaign for its sequel.
The Kickstarter page has raised more than $70,000 so far, and the game is already in production.
The studio said the game will be a fun, unique experience.
It is unclear whether the game has a release date yet.
