Pineapples are infiltrating our schools!

Stop me if you've heard this one before: an evil wizard has appeared and turned all the school children in Boston into pineapples.

The video above shows some really, really early alpha footage but you can see some of the core ideas displayed, like managing the individual teachers and pupils.

The team at Subaltern Games are looking to release a playable alpha in a few months and I hope it turns out as weird as possible.
