Talk & Play is a free event organised by BerlinGameScene.com that provides the opportunity to game enthusiasts, players and makers to meet and exchange knowledge in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. It’s also the reason why this site exists.
Talk & Play #11, which took place on February 25 2015, was a special one: it was the first organised independently, without the support of OpenTechSchool, and also the first happening at Supermarkt instead of co.up – a venue I love, but that’s too small for what the event has become.

The February edition of the Berlin Mini Game Jam took place on Saturday 28, and was one of the most crowded so far, with more than 80 people creating 23 games in total. I’ve attended the presentations, which are always open to the public, and noticed that some of the participants decided to pay tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy, who died the previous day at age 83, by making games starring Mr. Spock. Let’s have a look at them. Continue reading Berlin Mini Game Jam participants pay tribute to Leonard Nimoy
Naaaaa! Any plans for the weekend? – a former colleague of mine used to ask me this question every single time we met in the office kitchen. I wish we still worked together, so that I could answer him “Yes, I’m going to play The Curious Expedition for free, and so should you!”. Continue reading Make this weekend a Curious Expedition weekend
