Kleine Hörempfehlung. Barbara Kaufmann hat einen schönen Beitrag zum Thema #Newsgames gebastelt. Marcus erzählt mal wieder das Gleiche. Diesmal aber recht flüssig. Nächste Woche ist Linda dran. Sie hat einen Termin beim Deutschlandfunk. Danke liebe Medienschaffende!
Hello. I am on the Autobahn listening to the highly recommended radio programme Breitband (german). Right now On the Wall by Taperecorder is playing. I am on the Autobahn. I have been for some time now.
Linda and Marcus this week met in the Hochtaunuskreis to attend this years final Kultur- und Kreativpiloten Workshop. What a great gathering of creative minds finally playing table tennis in the middle of the night slightly drunk.
On a more serious note was our mission that we headed for the next day. All in all we participated in four panels during this year´s Next Level Conference (Try to find us!) in Dortmund. We talked about:
- How to set up a Game Studio / Linda & Marcus
- How to be a woman (in the games industry) / Linda
- How to get funding, earn money and drink coffee / Marcus
- What the future will eventually be like / Linda
Thx to Nadia who invited us, to Gunnar who did a great job as a presenter and all the friendly people who listened and treated us with coffee and cake.
Die WASD ist eine Mischung aus Buch und Magazin (Bookzine) und erscheint alle sechs Monate. Thematisch geht es um Computergames. Das wusstet Ihr wahrscheinlich bereits alles. Gut so.
In der aktuellen Ausgabe Nummer 4 findet Ihr einen Text von Marcus über das Zeitalter der Sensoren (und Games). Wir haben hier bei the Good Evil gerade erst angefangen uns mit diesem zukunftsweisenden Thema auseinanderzusetzen….
Oh. We are late. Sorry. But Marcus has been travelling from A to B and C while Linda was busy juggling everything else.
Now we are nearly on our way heading to Frankfurt for this years final Kultur- und Kreativpilotenworkshop and directly afterwards you will find us at the Next Level Conference in Dortmund.
Today´s suggestion: Support your local newsagent and buy the Page Magazin #01/2014 on Wednesday. You can find Linda in there.
Anything else? Yes, my dear. We now have an offical Keynote speaker for our Newsgame Hackathon 2014. We will not reveal his name for now. But we give you a hint. He or she is living and working in the UK.
Up till now you only have seen our two friends running around in the woods. Actually they do cut a good figure in the kitchen too. Not on this picture: The sleazy rats. Never mind! You will be introduced shortly.
"The digital game is the emblematic cultural form of our times."
We just stumbled over the Institute of Plays Website. What an invaluable source of inspiration and material. Like the Design Pack (PDF) and the Quest to Learn book (PDF). Kudos!
Buddha Park, also known as Xieng Khuan is a sculpture park located 25 km southeast from Vientiane, Laos in a meadow by the Mekong River. Marcus sends his very best regards and hopes that you find your inner equilibrium or something else.
Sabaidee! That is the way to say „Hi“ in Laos. Marcus is here at the moment. Driving around on a scooter, fighting monkeys in the woods and giving lectures at the National University of Laos.
He just had to escape the grey german winter. Hope you can understand that. But he will be back pretty soon. Meanwhile he e.g. talked to Franziska from the magazine PAGE about Newsgames.
Linda and Guido hold the fort. Linda has once again met with Olaf and Martin to discuss „Die besseren Wälder“ and is intensive exchange with the nice people from the Deutsche Welle Sprachkurse whom we help implementing a language learning game.
Besides that she found time to visit the Advance Coaching Day in Cologne, talked to a bunch of people like Dirk and played a prototype by Konzept Zwei.
Macht´s gut! That is the way to say “Take care” in Germany.
Another glitch from developing Squirrel&Bär. They both want to be ready for #kitkat so they dressed up in red. #squirrelbear #android #shader #gamedev (hier: the Good Evil HQ)
