Roll up southerners, there’s ever more games conference fun to be had in sunny London this summer. Feral Vector is a renamed Bit of Alright, an indie games event that’s taken place for the last few years. Brendy drew us up a report on it back in 2012, while the 2013 version featured RPS all-star Cara Ellison giving a talk on Twine. This year already promises RPS-news-queen Alice’s thoughts on readme.txt files and Twitter celeb Christos “failnaut” Reid’s take on personal games, plus many more.
As Feral Vector is a renamed Bit Of Alright, so BOA was a renamed World of Love. Jim wrote about that back in the distant past, in between making kissy-eyes at Tom Betts. The basic idea remains the same now: get interesting people up on stage to talk about the less-talked-about elements of our hobby. Bit Of Alright also took place on a boat, so there’s that.
You can grab tickets for Feral Vector at a discounted £40 over here, or check out pictures from last year’s show here. In my experience gaming events have an extraordinary money to fun ratio, so this seems worth digging into.
