Completely forgot to mention this. The Thinkosium – sold out within hours and we’ve just had the final guest confirm, who’s a splendid addition – is obviously the biggie, but there’s more to RPS and the London Games Fringe than that. I’m actually speaking at Playful, which is a day long event on the 31st of October where various chaps and chapesses have a good old ramble. And there’s a video of me yabbering beneath the cut about what I plan to speak about…
Kieron Gillen talks Playful:Game Design London from Toby Barnes on Vimeo.
Also, anyone who fancies having a good old stalk can hyper-analyse what books I’ve got on my shelves.
