Canuck Play, the local video game company that has gained international coverage for its one-of-a-kind football games announce Doug Flutie as an ambassador for the Maximum Football franchise. Doug Flutie, considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, will be a brand ambassador for the only video game on the market that allows gamers to play with US College, Canadian, and U.S. professional styles of play.
Canuck Play and partner Spear Interactive, an indie game publisher based in Hamilton, are excited to have Doug Flutie come on board.
“We’re extremely excited to have Doug on board,” says David Winter, President of Canuck Play. “His accomplishments at all levels and styles of gridiron football are well known, and he is the obvious natural fit for our title.”
Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football will feature Doug as a playable character and include multiple new game play features.
“I’m basically a kid at heart, who lives for playing sports in person or on the screen. This partnership gives me the chance to join the video game space and I’m looking forward to helping grow the Maximum Football brand,” says Flutie. “What drew me to Maximum Football was the innovative concept of including three different styles of football in the game.”
Canuck Play, a client of the Innovation Cluster, has developed their games within Peterborough, launching their first title in downtown Peterborough in July 2017.
“This is a game changer for the the Peterborough-based game development company,” notes Michael Skinner, President & CEO of the Innovation Cluster. “Doug Flutie embodies the Canuck Play brand and we are excited to see a local company bringing on such a prominent figure in their industry.”
