New Life in the Dorms Trailer Explains What College is Like

Posted by Dave Seaman on Thursday, 13 October 2011

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA AND NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT – October 11, 2011 – Moment Games, in collaboration with a pair of scissors, some paint, and a glue stick, is proud to release the first trailer for Life in the Dorms, an upcoming comedic adventure game for the Xbox Live Indie Games channel. In this trailer, a man wearing a cardboard head explains what one can expect to find in Life in the Dorms, and also dances a little.

In Life in the Dorms, players take the role of Dack Peeples, a lonely college freshman who's also paranoid that his new roommate is going to carve him up with an axe. Join Dack as he goes through all the typical early dorm-life experiences, such as saying goodbye to Mom and Dad, attending orientation, performing open surgery and—with any luck—discovering the true meaning of ramen noodles. I mean friendship.
Other top bullet points of the game include:
·         Bears! Murder! …Icebreakers!
·         Sharp dialogue written by an acclaimed humor writer
·         A New Game + mode! (Yes, in an adventure game.)
·         Copyediting! And lots of it.
·         A crossover with the hit corporate-simulator Office DisOrders
·         And absolutely no zombies.
Life in the Dorms also introduces a brand-new, social networking-inspired interaction type to the adventure game genre: Dack can post "Flitter" updates about everything and everyone in the game—in fact, he'll have to, in order to solve many of the game's challenging puzzles.
