holestorylogoThe developers of PENGUEMIC, LearnDistrict Inc., have been occupied with an innovative project of theirs that just might change the game design industry.

It is the Girls Make Games project, and it’s kind of awesome.

Girls Make Games is a series of summer camps, workshops, and get-togethers for girls in an effort to increase the feminine presence in the gaming industry. On Girls Make Games’ Demo Day, the five teams pitched their game ideas to some top names in the indie game business (Tim Schafer and Kellee Santiago to name a few) and the winner is now on Kickstarter.

Hear ye, hear ye, I give to you: The Hole Story!

LearnDistrict Inc. has turned to Kickstarter to raise $10K for the LearnDistrict Inc. staff to put The Hole Story together. Conveniently, the funds have already been raised and now they’re working their way to some stretch goals.

holestory1All right, all this talk about The Hole Story – what’s it even about, eh?

A girl equipped with a mighty shovel with a love for digging and exploration one day takes it too far when she accidentally digs up some kind of portal to some distance land where she must rescue a missing princess in order to return home. The Hole Story is designed as an RPG adventure in which players must solve puzzles and look through clues, which the whereabouts of are randomly generated.

In the 18 days remaining in the campaign, we’re looking forward to seeing which stretch goals are going to be tackled.
