The Ubisoft Indie series presented by Banque Nationale ended in March. The top Indie studios in the province competed against one another in this friendly competition which encourages the leadership of independent video games. During the celebratory gala on March 13, Studio Manavoid made off with the first prize that included a whopping $50,000, a mentor scheme with Ubisoft experts, a complete financial diagnostic offered by Banque Nationale, as well as a host of support activities to launch their game, Steamboat Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan.
The friendly founders of Studio Sabotage, who won the previous edition, had the pleasure of awarding the first prize to this year’s winners. We used this opportunity to talk to them about The Messenger’s phenomenal success and to find out more about what this dynamic duo – made up of Martin Brouard and Thierry Boulanger – have planned for the future. The timing could not be more relevant, they are launching Picnic Panic, a free DLC, today.
