Worcester, MA – A team of four Interactive Media and Game Development students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA), will be presenting Pandora: Purge of Pride at PAX East in Boston, MA on March 22-24 at the Boston Convention Center. Pandora: Purge of Pride will have a playable demo available at Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s booth, number 998. Convention attendees will be able to sample whole Pandora experience.
Two puzzles from the final game will be available for play along with a “playground” level that allows players to test out all of the powers available to the player in a full playthrough of Pandora. The demo has also been attached to this press release in case you can not make it to PAX East.
About Pandora: Purge of Pride
Pandora: Purge of Pride is a first person puzzle game set in Victorian England based around the story of Pandora's Box. It features a unique hand-drawn art style and custom designed puzzles based on the Seven Deadly Sins. As you recapture the Seven Deadly Sins, you will gain further powers to solve puzzles.
Pandora: Purge of Pride has been in development since August, 2012. The team consists of two artists—Jill Sauer and Ryan Casey—and two programmers—Michael Frankfort and Alex Thornton-Clark. They have developed Pandora in Unity to fulfill their Major Qualifying Project (MQP) requirement at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Following the student project phase of development Pandora will be sold in its complete form on PC and Mac.
