PRACTICE 2014 recap

This year’s PRACTICE, the game design con­fer­ence at NYU Game­cen­ter, was as great as expect­ed. It’s real­ly nice to be sur­round­ed by game design­ers for a cou­ple of days and to be able to dis­cuss game design in detail. As Frank Lantz put it in the intro­duc­tion: “Game design is a sick­ness and the only […]

Week 274

At the start of this week Alper was still in NYC after enjoy­ing anoth­er excel­lent edi­tion of PRACTICE. He did some work on Bycatch with Sub­alekha and oth­er­wise enjoyed the city before head­ing back to Europe on Tues­day. While he was mak­ing the cross­ing, I par­tic­i­pat­ed in the first Tegen­licht meet­up in Utrecht. We watched […]

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 237

On Mon­day I got sev­er­al vis­its from friends, fam­i­ly and col­leagues, all curi­ous about my new work­space. It was enjoyable—we even played some Ani­mal Upon Ani­mal with Eel­co’s kids—but not con­ducive to much pro­duc­tiv­i­ty. I main­ly did finan­cial and admin­is­tra­tive tasks. Alper, mean­while, returned from a much-deserved long week­end relax­ing (and drink­ing cof­fee) in Oslo. He […]

Week 221

So, hel­lo from NYC. We’ll be here for a few more days before head­ing back to Utrecht and Berlin. After spend­ing a week see­ing the sights with my love­ly wife, last week I moved to an apart­ment in the Low­er East Side and start­ed work on Beesten­bende. Simon had designed the new UI in record […]

Week 220

Last Mon­day Kars hand­ed over the run­ning engage­ments to me and tied up some loose ends for ASARI and SABA before jump­ing on a plane to NYC. He’s there for a week of sight-see­ing with his love­ly wife before I fol­low him for work. That left me with a pro­duc­tive week where I inte­grat­ed the design […]
