The world's first two-player hipster clown performance/argument simulator, starring Morro and Jasp, Canadian Comedy Award and Dora Award winners.
As the curtain rises, Morro and Jasp’s newest show is about to start they don't have a script. Players take on the role of Morro or Jasp, and choose their dialogue, actions and reactions, moment-by-moment, line-by-line.
In a two player game, each player uses a separate device that plays the audio for their character, emulating the feel of a live performance.
U.N.I.T. Productions, the home of the Morro and Jasp clown series, is the brainchild of Heather Marie Annis, Byron Laviolette and Amy Lee. Over 12 years they've created 10 Morro and Jasp stage shows. The company has been nominated for three Dora Mavor Moore Awards (winning the 2012 Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in the Independent Theatre division), three Canadian Comedy Awards (winning the 2014 Award for Best Variety Act), a BroadwayWorld Award and over ten NOW Magazine Awards including Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Production, Outstanding Ensemble, and Outstanding Direction.
Starting in 2013, they started collaborating with David Fono to make a Morro and Jasp videogame. David has been making games for a decade, include other mobile games, web games, board games and field games. 4 years later, we're finally done!
