Having just stepped into a church crypt I was confronted with the prospect of a talk on art and videogames. This could so easily be the opening sentence for a horror novel aimed at games journos or internet commenters. Luckily it was actually part of Feral Vector.
Feral Vector – previously A Bit Of Alright, previously World of Love – is an indie games conference curated by David Hayward (he of the Leftfield collection at Eurogamer events). The event I was attending had a room dedicated to games people could actually play, another whose chair infestation and projector lent it to talks and a third which was a tearoom and Puzzle Script classroom. Sidenote: the tearoom windows don’t seem to open so I spent twenty minutes having some kind of Lapsang sauna.
