Sorry for the hiatus, dissertation work has me a bit lacking free time. Updates soon. Although I had to post another great opportunity to play some great games and help out a charity. It does not get much better than that. Check out the third go around of the Humble Indie Bundle.
I am a little late with posting this, but videos are up from the Art History of Video Games Conference. There are some really great talks. I found the talks by Frank Lantz and Brenda Brathwaite to be especially good.
On May 27th, the Games for Learning Institute will play host to the Games for Change Festival to put on a workshop on Games and Learning. The keynote speakers scheduled include:
- Jaron Lanier, Microsoft Research, Author, You Are Not a Gadget
- Alan Kay, Viewpoints Research Institute
- Michael H. Levine, Joan Ganz Cooney Center
As a research assistant for the Institute, I can say I will definitely be there to help out. Others scheduled to be there for talks include: Ken Perlin, Jan Plass, Sigmund Tobias, Marc Prensky, Constance Steinkuehler, Greg Chung, Cornelia Brunner, Kurt Squire, Brian Nelson, Tracy Fullerton, Eric Zimmerman, Miguel Nussbaum, Marjee Chmiel, Nina Walia, Doug Clark, Tobi Sauliner, and Wanda Gregory.
An impressive list for sure. So come check it out. Click the link for program details:
Games For Learning Institute » 7th Anual Games for Change Festival, May 27th – Games and Learning: G4LI Workshop.
The Humble Indie Bundle (pay what you want for five awesome indie games).
Only 20 hours left. All proceeds go to charity. Over $800,000 raised so far. All of these games are really great and worth a look.
So this is really late notice, bu if you follow the some of the game related events in NYC, you are already aware of this. The NYU Game Center, who by the way is starting to offer some excellent courses and always has great talks, is hosting No Quarter: An Exhibition of Games. There will be four games on exhibit done by some great people. I highly suggest you stop by 721 Broadway if you are interested. As usual, the Game Center is providing food and wine. Link
