Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

Week 307

Last week Kars was on something of a road show traveling the length of the Netherlands for projects old and new. At the same time I was in the studio working with technology. Kars went to Tilburg to pitch successfully for further funding on SHIJIMI. Now that that cycle is closed we can move forward […]

Week 301

Last week I processed the last of the media attention for Bycatch. We now have a fairly handsome list of praise in various languages at the top of the page (check it out!) with Kotaku, Killscreen, Deutschlandradio Kultur, WIRED, NOS and Bright. We might add one or two more to that but with that it’s […]

Week 288

I was joined by Alper in the Utrecht studio again this week. With all that’s going on in NL at the moment it’s nice to have him on site a little more frequently. One of the things we did was start the second sprint on SHACHI. Alper and Tim worked together on the alpha version […]

Week 269

We’re making good progress on Bycatch for which we got a welcome refocusing after a sit-down with Joris. Joris himself was at SPIEL demoing Super Duo a card game of his own so he’s definitely an expert when it comes to this kind of thing. We’ll also have a website online this week through which […]

Week 245

Our collaboration with Subalekha (codenamed KEGANI) reached a milestone this week with the submission of a proposal to the Knight Foundation’s Prototype Fund. We talked through the draft proposal on Monday, made some final adjustments afterwards, and sent it in on Wednesday. It’s fingers crossed for now while we wait for a response. I spent […]

Week 241

An intense week, not in the last place because of Alper’s physical presence at the Utrecht studio for the whole week. It was time for another OKR review and we prefer to do those live in meatspace. As always, we graded ourselves, came to some harsh realisations and adjusted course accordingly. Building an applied game […]

Week 218

Last week Kars and I went on a trip to London which was chock-full of things to do and people to meet. What had started out as a visit to Playful quickly snowballed out of control. Take a seat, these weeknotes are a bit longer than usual. We put some finishing touches on our work […]

Week 191

Last week was the penultimate production week for KAIGARA during which I was present at the Utrecht studio for three days for the very essential facetime that cannot be replaced by Apple’s FaceTime even though it does come close. Tuesday was a full day of work with the entire team at the Hubbub studio helmed […]

Week 162

After last week’s mega-weeknotes I’ll keep these short. Not in the least because they effectively cover two, maybe three days, if I include Saturday. To start with the latter: I handed the students that I have been coaching the past half year at the Utrecht School of the Arts their MA degrees. There were short […]
