Week 194

Last week was most­ly us qui­et­ly work­ing away on our cur­rent projects, with some extracuric­u­lar activ­i­ties in between. Here’s what hap­pened: Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie (SAKE) We shipped some new fea­tures to Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie, most notably a swanky pre­view mode for play­ers and writ­ers and lim­it­ed markup capa­bil­i­ties for the lat­ter. Not exact­ly rock­et sci­ence […]

Week 193

Last week while I was still in Paris (like Kars men­tioned in the pre­vi­ous week’s notes) we launched the pilot for Rip­ple Effect. That was a moment where we saw the work of the past peri­od come to fruition and exposed real play­ers world­wide to the game. The game has held up very nice­ly but […]

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 190

Hav­ing launched Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie just before the week­end it’s only nat­ur­al we had to do a few quick fix­es on Mon­day, the first prop­er day of the game. I sat down with Niels to review his nar­ra­tive design for KAIGARA. He’s doing a great job of adding “just enough” theme to what is oth­er­wise […]

Introducing Victory Boogie Woogie

We’ve been writ­ing about project SAKE here since June last year. A while back it was unveiled to be (Your Dai­ly) Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie, an online col­lab­o­ra­tive writ­ing game we’ve made togeth­er with De Gids. Next week on Mon­day, the game will start. So I thought I’d take the time to tell you a bit […]

Week 188

Belat­ed wee­knotes! I blame the long East­er week­end, and the switch to day­light sav­ing time. Let’s keep it short shall we? Alper spent most of the week hack­ing away at KAIGARA, which is shap­ing up nice­ly. He also put some fin­ish­ing touch­es on SAKE, which is going to kick off next week! Sign up for […]

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 184

Alper was asked to con­tribute some words on ‘gam­i­fi­ca­tion’ to TNW Mag­a­zine, which appeared the begin­ning of this week. With some amuse­ment we took note of the oth­er con­trib­u­tors to this piece. Let’s just say a diverse range of per­spec­tives is cov­ered. On Mon­day Alper and I worked on adapt­ing Code 4 for play with­in […]

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 […]
