NEW GAMING SPIN-OUT BY LETHBRIDGE STUDENTS AIMING TO DISRUPT THE INDIE MARKET

Release Date: September 8, 2017

Cubic Timeline Productions Inc (CTP Inc) co-founded by Patrick C. Kelly and Charleston Olaes, and Andrew J. Wilton is a video game software developer based out of Lethbridge, Alberta Canada whose mission is to develop memorable indie games.   As of late the company reached a critical milestone with the assistance of the University of Lethbridge’s University-Industry Liaison Office (UILO). The UILO mainly through Dr Greg Vilk, its UILO Manager and Mr Sean Roberts, the Business Development Assistant, facilitated many of their business needs critical for their continued success. Their latest game release, Vulture, takes a new spin on old vertical shooter games like Strikers 1945[TM], Raptor[TM], and Raiden [TM] and allows you to build, customize and upgrade your own ships. The co-founders noted that with assistance from the UILO team “it helped streamline the commercialization process and  understand what steps were required to get our company up and running. Whenever we had a question, they were quick to respond to an email or set up a meeting in person in order to help us resolve the issues we were encountering.” We wish them luck on their continued success!
