Canadian game studio strives for something different

The game is set in Londonton, a fictional and foolish vision of London, Kahoots World MapEngland. Drawing its inspiration from British board games like Cluedo (AKA “Clue”), and absurdly humorous series like Monty Python’s Flying Circus and The League of Gentlemen, Kahoots immerses the player in sepia-tinged Edwardian (fake) England at the height of a crime wave.

The creators hope that the game’s clay graphics will set it Read the rest of this entry »
