Owlchemy Labs has been experimenting with a clever game premise since Immigration Jam was held on August 21 and 22, 2010 at the Singapore/MIT GAMBIT Game Lab. The 48-hour experiment has become a full-blown game: Smuggle Truck. The absurdity of the game caught the attention of Bill Tiller, the LucasArts background artist for Curse of Monkey Island. He has joined the owl lab to help its experiment come to life.
The people have noticed! Alexander Sliwinski has talked the game up on Joystiq, while reminding gamers of the developers’ previous hit, Super Ramen Bros. A game making such big headlines must be made by indie superstars; an interview with Owlchemy Labs’ chief resident Alex Schwartz seemed only fitting.
