CORNWALL, Ontario – Carl Pilon, a graduate of St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School in Cornwall, is set to release his first computer game “Abomi Nation” on Thursday July 29 which will be available for purchase on Steam. Pilon explained the game will is only able to be played on computers and not available for cell phone play, with a purchase price of $19.99 USD.

Abomi Nation is a role-playing game, which allows gamers to follow the adventures of monster-like creatures called Abomis as they explore the island.  As the characters evolve and gain skills, they experience battles, enjoy social events and interact with other Abomi teams.

Pilon explained he became interested in computer programming and game development as he completed his post secondary education.  About four years ago he decided to work at creating a computer game with Abomi Nation being completed earlier this year and is currently undergoing final market research before its release at the end of July.

When asked about his favourite part of developing the video game, he mentioned creating the animation for the characters and the island was very enjoyable, commenting the sound design was very complicated.

For those who would like to have an advance look at the video game prior to being released, a trailer is available at or visit the Steam website to view a demo of Abomi Nation.
