Talk & Play #35

January 22 @ 19:0023:00

Free

RSVP via Meetup is mandatory to attend the talks, due to limited seating capacity. Registration won’t be required to attend the event from 21:00 for the game showcase part.

Talk & Play is a free event, taking place every two months, that provides the opportunity to game enthusiasts, players and makers to meet in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. Everybody’s welcome, regardless of their background and knowledge level: if you like games, we’ll make sure you have a good time! This is NOT an event only aimed at developers.

Talk & Play is kindly sponsored by Kickstarter, a global community built around creativity and creative projects. https://www.kickstarter.com

HOW IT WORKS

The event is structured in two parts:

— TALK: Short game-related presentations + announcements from the community

— PLAY: All participants are welcome to exhibit games and projects they’ve made

THE TALKS

Jan Schnorrenberg will be talking about queer history of videogames in the context of RAINBOW ARCADE, the fantastic exhibition he co-curated which is running until May 13th at the Schwules Museum in Berlin. https://www.schwulesmuseum.de/ausstellung/rainbow-arcade-a-queer-history-of-video-games-1985-2018/?lang=en

Thomas van den Berg (aka noio) will present “Garbage Country”, an experiment with persistent multiplayer mechanics he’s been working on for more than a year, sharing the challenges he faced along the way. Find out more at http://www.noio.nl/2019/01/garbage-country-logbook/

/////

After the talks, we’ll have some “teasers”, during which a selection of game makers will get the chance briefly present their projects.

As usual, there will also be a section dedicated to short announcements from the community – get in touch to reserve a spot: https://berlingamescene.com/contact/
