One of the projects I regretfully neglected to mention in yesterday's post about Ontario funding locally developed games was Office Yeti. Metanet Software already announced the title a month ago, but its concept warrants repeating here:

"Office Yeti, which we’ve been prototyping lately, is a single-player action/puzzle/simulation game in which players assume control of a yeti who works in an office.

But, you may be asking, how did HR come to inadvertently hire a yeti? Why a Yeti, and not a Sasquatch? Is this all some sort of hilarious inside joke?

For now these questions will all remain unanswered; the important point is that you’re a tiny little character in a tiny little simulated office building full of even tinier characters and objects, all of which are going about their business more or less oblivious to the fact that you are, to put it bluntly, non-human. Just like in an office in real life!"

The N+ developer recently added a teaser image (above) to Office Yeti's official site, which puts a bright tie on the hairy creature and sends him into the big city. The Yeti seems ready for his office job... But is his office job ready for a Yeti?

The other Metanet project in the works, Robotology (which I brought up a few weeks ago), also received a new teaser image showing the Department of Robotology's coat of arms -- it looks like a group of mechs that attach to form a Voltron-esque robot and fight giant space monsters. I assume the game's nothing like that, but one can dream.
