Week 187

On Mon­day Kars pre­sent­ed the final HIRAME con­cept at the client. Aside from some minor tweaks need­ed on the brand­ing front it was received well. We’re hop­ing this will turn into a full-on pro­duc­tion project like KAIGARA next —at which point we’ll prob­a­bly be able to reveal its client— but for now we’ll have to […]

Week 186

As is the nat­ur­al rhythm of things, we’ve been wrap­ping up a num­ber of projects last week, while oth­ers are pick­ing up steam. On the wrap­ping-up front, I worked with Her­man on prepar­ing the slide deck for HIRAME’s final deliv­ery. We put in some sug­ges­tions for a visu­al style, a prop­er game title, a premise—that […]

Week 182

On Mon­day Alper got good news about our sub­mis­sion to the gam­i­fi­ca­tion research net­work work­shop at CHI. Our posi­tion paper was accept­ed, which means we’ll be there to con­tribute to the dis­cus­sion. Alper has promised me he’ll talk a bit more about our sub­mis­sion here soon. Mean­while that same day, I spent some time fine […]

Week 181

Such a full stack last week that I’m a bit unsure what to start with. Lots of new busi­ness being dis­cussed too vague­ly to write about, but we can say 2013 is off to a good start. Though Berlin is still rather cold: Kars spent a large part of the week prepar­ing the HIRAME playtest […]

Week 178

So it’s been a snowy week here in Utrecht—and I’m pret­ty sure it’s been more than chilly in Berlin too. We start­ed the week ear­li­er than usu­al, on Sun­day, with myself plug­ging away at a revised chap­ter for the Game­ful World book—trying to cram in as many ref­er­ences as I could, and gen­er­al­ly clar­i­fy­ing and […]

Week 174

The penul­ti­mate work­week of the year turned out rather packed with work on two new projects—the afore­men­tioned HIRAME and now also KAIGARA, for which con­tracts were signed mid­way through the week. KAIGARA is game con­cept devel­op­ment for a multi­na­tion­al company—our biggest client to date in fact, so I am quite pleased. I’ll wait with shar­ing […]

Week 173

Last week Alper vis­it­ed Moscow to par­tic­i­pate in Urban Forum. He tells me he talked about “data and gen­er­a­tiv­i­ty as a prac­tice for inno­v­a­tive cities.” Mean­while I sol­diered on in the Utrecht stu­dio with half a jeal­ous eye on his Insta­gram feed. On Mon­day I act­ed as sound­ing board for Zineb and Chris. As men­tioned […]

Week 172

Woah, almost fell off the horse there—it’s Wednes­day and I haven’t writ­ten up last weeks notes yet. So real quick, let me tell you what hap­pened. Most notably, I fin­ished writ­ing my Game­ful World chap­ter. I then added ref­er­ences and col­lect­ed images. After one last proof­read I sent it to the edi­tors one day short […]
