Corponation: Canteen's debut game

The Seagull had the pleasure of attending The Foundry for the launch party for Corponation, the buzzy new PC game from friends of The Seagull, local game developers Canteen. Everyone was wearing suits as befits a game about working in a corporate nation, and in their well-libated state they were admonishing me to “work hard”. Many congratulations to Sam and Vicki for all their hard work, and readers who are interested in Corponation can purchase it on Steam (it's currently on sale for 20% off!).
