Thanks to a burst of focused planning, we have a bunch of forthcoming meetings scheduled for the Oxford/London Meetup. They are
London, February 16. We will be playing a variant of San Tilapian Studies, along with other short card and boardgames focused on storymaking with other people. I’m psyched about this – San Tilapian Studies takes a fair amount of prep to put together and I don’t run it frequently, so if you want to play, this is an unusual chance. We’re using a different setting and sticker set than in the original.
Oxford, April 3. Sunday afternoon pub meet-up; you may bring WIPs or other items to share if you like, though we’re not set up for actual projection or anything like that. Consider this one a really late March meeting, because SXSW/GDC/Easter weekend use up all of my actual March.
London, April 19. Exact activity TBD, though I have some interesting prospects I’m looking into.
London, June 14. Exact activity TBD, though I have some interesting prospects I’m looking into.
Thanks to Failbetter Games for their on-going willingness to co-host!
If you are planning to be at GDC, here’s some IF-related content for you:
I will be talking in a short format about visualization and design, with many examples from interactive narrative contexts (as well as some from elsewhere).
inkle studios folks will be talking about their tool ink that is used for 80 Days and the Sorcery! series, and which they will be open-sourcing. (!)
Meg Jayanth is speaking twice, once about writing NPCs with agency and once about diversity.
