Macguffin Games, founded by Scott Macmillan in 2008, just announced its first game project this past week – Heritage, a hybrid RPG / strategy game that focuses on epic scale storytelling  and will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Macguffin’s goal is to enter a beta into the Independent Games Festival by November and to show off a prototype demo at the first Independent Game Conference East on May 7th right here in Boston.

Scott Macmillan has worked in the game industry for over 7 years, is the co-organizer of the Boston GameLoop conference and a board member for the Boston IGDA chapter, Post Mortem.
