Last week I was in the Netherlands to wrap up some stuff at our Utrecht studio and to discuss a realign of the studio (more on that later!). On Tuesday I caught up with some people in Amsterdam and on Wednesday I made my way back to Berlin, just in time for the games.net summer party, always a great event for people making games in Berlin.
On the projects front: the SHIJIMI proposal needed some adjustment before being final. There is a bunch more stuff in the pipes that will make its way into a future weeknote. Standing got written up on Bright. We are glad about the attention it is getting and we’re now in talks about development. Kars met up with a couple of Dutch cultural attachés to talk about the role games and play can take in the Netherlands’ representation abroad.
Thursday evening I organized a get-together at our Berlin studio for game designers to discuss open problems together and find solutions. This proved to be immensely valuable and will likely become a regular thing.
Kars playtested KEGANI, a game we’re making together with Subalekha Udayasankar and we’re really excited about the results from that.
