News: College indie adventure title Life in the Dorms will hit Xbox Live later today and it doesn’t sound like your typical college experience.
I don’t normally post about small, unknown indie games or read press releases about them unless the games in question are controversial or look good. However, a press release for an Xbox Live indie game titled Life in the Dorms caught my eye not because the game looks good (it looks like crap to be honest), but because the press release and the way it’s written is amusing.
Developed for over two years and out later today on Xbox Live, Life in the Dorms is an indie adventure/puzzle title that’s about a homesick college student named (smirks) Dax Peeples who goes through typical-sounding college experiences like college orientation, love, friendship and eating a healthy diet of obligatory ramen. Oh, and he’ll have to avoid getting killed by his psychotic axe-wielding roommate. And there are bears, too! And no voxels!
To further amuse you, here’s a list of the full unedited bullet points provided in the press release that highlight the game’s features:
- Bears! Murder! …Icebreakers!
- An engrossing coming-of-age tale about blah blah blah
- Sharp dialogue written by an acclaimed humor writer!
- A crossover with the hit corporate-simulator Office DisOrders
- No Avatars or voxels—whatsoever!
- And a price tag that’s cheaper than a spiral-bound notebook.
The game may not look good (though, it is an indie game after all), but it sure sounds awesome!
