Lecture at the Guildford IGDA chapter
Ben Board from the Guildford IGDA asked me to come in and deliver a lecture to their monthly meeting. It's my local chapter, but I'm ashamed to say I hadn't been before. We met at a downtown bar, but their projection system wasn't really up to snuff, so we hacked up our own. My lecture was "Bad Game Designer, No Twinkie," which is practically becoming traditional for IGDA chapters, but the real highlight of the evening was the presentation by Paul Hilton, Executive Producer at Gizmondo, of their new device. Four years in the making, this thing does everything but brush your teeth for you. It's like an N-Gage on steroids, delivering all sorts of content wirelessly and playing some great-looking games too.
