Tekling 2: Overdrive is here!

We are PUMPED to announce the official release of Tekling 2: Overdrive! We are so impressed with the collaboration, teamwork, and dedication demonstrated by nonPareil Crew members! Over 25 nonPareil Crew comprised the Tekling 2: Overdrive project team, and dozens other contributed by play-testing and providing feedback to fellow Crew. This project was truly an all-site collaborative effort highlighting the talents, skillsets, and expertise of our Crew, and after 24 months, we are thrilled to announce the game's release! "What is Tekling 2: Overdrive about," you ask? Suit up and Boot up! Transform from a squishy little human to a mighty robot and jump, climb and battle your way through over 70 challenging platforming levels. Tekling can now adopt new and improved robot forms and take down the evil mad scientist and defeat his mechanical creations from taking over the world. We're hosting two contests this week: a social media share contest & a gameplay contest for Crew! Check out our Facebook page for details about our social media contest, and click here for details about our gameplay contest for Crew. The gameplay contest is this Friday from noon to 6pm! As many of you know, participation on a team project illustrates the culmination of our Crews' developing skillsets, including applying social, work-readiness and digital technology skills within a setting that helps promote professionalism.

Men and Women at work at nonPareil!

Did you know that Crew members at nonPareil Plano are working on two projects and getting paid for it? nonPareil Plano is in the process of building a safety-educational game that will be released later this year and are also building a digital catalog for Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine. Both of these projects give Crew members valuable and transferable work skills and they also get paid!
