Hey all, quick news flash: Mondo Museum will have its first public showing at Montréal DemoNight 2020 on 28 January at 19:30/7:30 PM Eastern.
This annual event is a high-energy exposition of many of the indie and more mainstream games being developed in the city, as well as a great get-together for friends and industry colleagues.
But for those who can’t attend in-person, the entire evening will be streamed live on Loto-Québec’s Twitch channel (en français).
The team at Viewport Games has been working hard to prep for this, and we’re really excited to give everyone a look at what we’ve been up to.
Complete details are available at demonight.ca — hope to see you then/there!
When it comes to museums, I’m a hardcore devotee.
It doesn’t matter whether they’re about natural history (my favorite), art, or some other subject, every time I step into one it feels like I’m entering a temple to creativity and understanding, and every time I leave my mind is opened and filled with wonder. For me, museums are more than just giant buildings packed with old paintings and skeletons; they’re places that reveal the true magic of our universe.
That might sound pompous, but I wanted to provide some context for why I’m over the moon to announce our collaboration with independent developer Viewport Games and publisher Kitfox Games on the upcoming management sim, Mondo Museum.
Players will get to construct and decorate their own unique halls, curate exhibits with items from a variety of cool collections — like Ancient Egypt, Space Exploration, and Dinosaurs (just to name a few!) — hire staff to keep things running, and grow their prestige (and profits) to gain access to newer and rarer artifacts. Institutional administration has never been this bright, colorful, or fun before!
We’re going to have a lot more to share in the coming months, but for now you can wishlist the game on Steam, find more info at the official site — www.mondomuseum.com — or check out the reveal teaser below.
