Doctoral: Bioware Lecture At BAFTA

The Drs Bioware recently lectured at BAFTA in London, talking to the assembled throng about the art of making RPGs, with particular reference to some fairly big games they've made recent, the Mass Effects and The Old Republic. They even bravely attempt to answer questions fielded by the BAFTA audience. I've posted an except below (via VG247) a more extensive version of the thing can…

BAFTA Publicly Praises Size Five’s Privates

If your only exposure to Size Five's size five Privates is through this esteemed periodical, you may believe that it is little more more than a flimsy excuse for us to make jokes about willies. Not true. Last night, at the British Academy Children's Awards, Privates won in the 'Learning - Secondary' category. This involved beating off competition from the likes of erstwhile Naked Chef…

Will Wright Is A “BAFTA Guru”

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts doesn't just hand out awards these days, it's also about trying to inspire people to be excellent in the first place. (It is very much the austere British charity version of Bill & Ted's philosophy.) To help do this they've created BAFTA Guru, which gets successful arts types to talk about their work. Most recently the focus…

Feature:

Subversion Unveiled

Last night at BAFTA in London the handsome men of Introversion sat on stage to chat about their more recent launch, that of Darwinia+ on XBLA. It's Darwinia and Multiwinia combined for console-dude fun-times. What was a little more interesting, however, was that they did a demo of their next game, Subversion. Chris admits cheerfully that it's probably a year until they should be doing…

Obvious Game BAFTA Noms Announced

We don't have Oscars in the UK. Instead, all the major film directors gather on a hillside in Gloucestershire, and roll enormous wheels of cheese towards the fields below. The director who concusses the most cows (or sheep, but they're only worth half a point) with his cheese wins a BAFTA. Who can forget the scandal in 2006, when Martin Scorsese knocked out an unprecedented…

If Only We Could Talk To The Introversion…

Now, that would be something. AND IT WILL BE. While the 360 release of Introversion's Darwinia+ isn't RPS' business, their launch event at BAFTA crosses over into our world for three reasons. Firstly, it's a developer Q&A whose topics include "Which is better, Xbox or PC?". Well, PC, obv. Secondly, I'm actually the chair and will be both prying truth from the Introversion boys and…
