Mind’s Eye Coming to Anime North
In an already busy season of conventions and festivals, the cast and crew of MIND’S EYE have added another stop to the tour, this one closer to our own backyard. Synn Studios and Lynnvander Productions are proud to announce that they are teaming up with Polaris to bring MIND’S EYE to ANIME NORTH, Canada’s premiere fan-run anime convention.
Unfolding the weekend after Victoria Day (or on the Memorial Day long weekend for our American friends), May 27th to 29th, Anime North takes place at two locations: the Toronto Congress Centre and at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel, near Pearson Airport. The con attracted nearly 17,000 visitors last year thanks to its combination of special guests and programs like the Skit Contest and Anime North Idol.
So what’s MIND’S EYE bringing? How about the first public test of the MIND’S EYE video game? Team 7 Productions is putting the finishing touches on the beta version of the game, where players will be able to try on their favourite Dreamweaver from the series and fight the evil Shadow’s Hand minions, The Dolgrath’s Girl Friday Maya, and the Big Red Bad himself. Fans of the original FINAL FANTASY for NES will definitely want to check this out.
As well, the team will continue play testing the MIND’S EYE-related role-playing game, “Dreamweaver.” Our last public test was at Wizard World Toronto, so put on your gaming hat, grab your 12-sided dice and get into the worlds of MIND’S EYE and put your imagination to the test.
Coming up next in the MIND’S EYE world tour, a stopover in St. John’s NFLD (and a homecoming for MIND’S EYE writer Tom Brown) at Sci-Fi on the Rock starting this Friday, April 15th.
