The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra played the soundtrack to my childhood at Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions, and 8-bit memories evolved into full symphonic nostalgia.
A full day of videogames at the Victoria & Albert Museum! What’s not to love?
A brief write-up of the Parallel Worlds event and VR-themed Late of 25/11/16.
Wherein I experience Dear Esther performed live at the Barbican—aka the fanciest Let’s Play.
I spent the first week of August up in Dundee. Despite being haunted even now by the city’s terrifying statues of the Bash Street Kids, I had a great time—thinking, learning, and talking about games.
For the benefit of those who didn’t make it, here are my notes from the ‘Kickstarter: Making a Game’ event held at the Guardian on 14/07/16.
Wherein I enjoy a variety of discussions, stack some camels, and jump round in a circle with my eyes shut shouting “Cat! Cat! Cat!”
The Annual IGDA London, Writers’ Guild of Great Britain and London South Bank University Games Writing Event was held on Wednesday 9th December 2015 at LSBU.
I’m not very good at blogging frequently—other things just seem to get in the way at the moment. That’s why I’m writing a quick overview of the Hay Festival of Literature & Arts an entire month after I got back from it. Never mind.
On Tuesday last, I attended an event at Tate Britain about ‘designing for community-powered digital transformations’ (#DigitalTrans). I decided that I would blog about it, but then thought that it might be an interesting idea to wait and compare it with the Creative Exchange launchpad event (#CXHub) that I was attending the next day. I thought similar ideas might come out of both events, that it’d be a good comparison.
On Wednesday I went to the Creative Exchange launchpad event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. I’ll start by saying that MOSI was a great venue, and looked like a really interesting museum – I was quite disappointed that I didn’t have time to look round it. The event was, in a word, good. I made eight pages of scrawled notes, and I only wrote down things that were interesting.
