At Michigan State University, we have been building a swashbuckling, 12-person multiplayer arcade game, called Plunder Panic , where two rival crews battle for supremacy on the high seas. Created in the style of a late 80s or early 90s arcade game, Plunder Panic offers multiple paths to victory, including defeating the enemy’s captain, scuttling the enemy’s ship or plundering treasure! Plunder Panic is housed within a unique arcade cabinet built out of a rum barrel forming a natural circular play space for the two competing pirate crews while exuding the sweet aromas of a pirates life. The barrel is topped with two treasure chests containing 12-classic NES style controllers and a ship’s mast that holds two back-to-back HDTVs.

An early version of the game was shown as a sneak peek during the Woz Interactive Media Gallery at the Traverse City Film Festival in July 2017. The game was debuted at IndieCade in October 2017 in Los Angeles and received the Audience Choice Award.

We have been accepted to the South By Southwest (SXSW) 2018 Gaming Pitch Competition  in Austin, TX and another big game festival later this spring (details currently under quarantine until public announcement in a couple weeks).

We are looking for funding to help support travel for the student team to attend these events, showcase their awesome work on the game, and represent the MSU GameDev program. With your modest support, students will get an invaluable experience. #GoGreen #SpartansWill #MSUGameDev #PlunderPanicTour #SupportTheStudents
