Slam Bolt Scrappers Party at Northeastern!

That’s right, Scrappers, team Fire Hose is bringing Slam Bolt Scrappers to NEU TODAY! The party starts at 6PM and it will be at 324 Ryder Hall on the NEU campus. And of course, if you aren’t a student at NEU, you’re still welcome to join us!

The official Facebook invite/details page is here: http://www.facebook.com/FireHoseGames#!/event.php?eid=160098330710351

We’re all very excited to show off the game and answer everyone’s darkest question about the industry.

This whole event was set up by two of our famously awesome QA testers who lead a secret double life as students at NEU on the side. Big thanks to Zach and Duncan – they put in a ton of time searching for bugs and problems in SBS, and we couldn’t have done it without them.

Looking forward to seeing you all at 6!
