Snow Cones 2
Team Lazerbeam are a game-punk trio that make short, cute, surreal, personal experiences about junk food and feelings.
Team Lazerbeam formed in late 2014, when friends Jason Sutherland, Richard Pieterse and Ben Rausch joined forces to make a game for Ludlum Dare 31. The result, Bionic Bliss (a cyber punk customer service game), struck a chord with players and laid the foundations for Team Lazerbeam’s future output. Over the following two years the band churned out a sting of very short, absurd, cutesy games that embraced being both very silly, and very sincere. Noteable hits include Wrestling With Emotions, Pizza Quest, Snow Cones and Dress To Express Dancing Success.The Shape of Punk to Come:
Over the past year (and a bit), Team Lazerbeam have been crafting their next sugar-coated dating simulator, Snow Cones Episode 2. At the time of writing this, they are very excited to release the game and have it worm it’s way into people’s lives.

First there was the innocent delight of Snow Cones and then the powerful speed-dating of Wrestling With Emotions and now this (Dress To Express Dancing Success, a) reaffirming blast of hot rainy nightlife. There’s something so joyous about this stuff."
