The E1G team was excited to welcome the game studio Phantom Compass to Brock University’s Center for Digital Humanities. Phantom Compass joined E1G to introduce the creative work they are accomplishing in St.Catharines as they lead the game development community in the Niagara Region.  Ericka Evans, Head of Production at Phantom Compass, treated the E1G team to an intro and opportunity to pre-beta test Rollers of the Realm! The development team at Phantom Compass is an awesome group of creative people working together to launch Rollers of the Realm, a Pinball RPG. The game takes story telling and gaming to new heights by combining elements of RPG and Pinball creating a unique user experience. For a more in depth look into the RPG and Pinball elements of Rollers of the Realm read this article on Gamezebo and check out the video below :)

The E1G teams’ career goals and interests varied from sports entertainment to acting, directing, writing and rapping. This group was a creative bunch interested in learning about what steps they can take to achieve their own creative goals. To accomplish this we love to welcome Industry Allies to join us at E1G! Industry Allies are friends of Every1Games helping us reach different goals. This weeks goal was to learn how to give feedback and receive feedback, a crucial skill in all of their mentioned creative roles. The E1G team had the opportunity to pre-beta test  Rollers of the Realm providing feedback to Ericka while putting their new found skills to work as beta-testers. We also had the opportunity to test Rollers of the Realm with the following week’s team.

We’d like to extend a warm and fuzzy thank you to Phantom Compass and to Ericka Evans for coming to visit us.  We are looking forward to playing Rollers of the Realm!

Highlights from E1G Kids in Niagara

Brock University’s Center for Digital Humanities hosted our first ever E1G Kids Week! Here are some of our favourite E1G moments…


Seeing Words of the Week in Practice: integrity, honesty, inspiration, friendship and responsibility. Kids need to understand these character building traits. If they can identify them in their favourite superheros, they can practice it themselves!

Creating Content: Using sploder.com each participant made their own game! We didn’t just make games, we also created our own super heroes and villains too. For your pleasure, I’ve included an awesome one created by an 8 year old;

K-Dude is a super villain with no super powers. He is a genius who designed a mask powerful enough to identify the weakness of every superhero in the universe and seeks to destroy them all.  Why? Because when K-Dude was a child, a super villain attacked their town and no superhero could stop them from taking the lives of his parents.

New Skills: On the first day of program we gave out notebooks so that our kids can practice taking notes like they will in high school and college! It was great. Their books were full of awesome drawings and thoughtful notes. I think we will do this again ;)

Thinking Kid

I also thought it was extra amazing to hear positive feedback from parents too!

“My kid won’t attend anything, I’ve tried sports, I’ve tried camps and he just isn’t interested but he wakes up excited to come to your [Every1Games] program.”

Thank you for reading the highlights from E1G Kids in Niagara!
