World of Love: The RPS Panel (& Podcast)

At the recent A Winter World of Love indie developer conference in London, RPS was kindly invited by event organisers Mudlark to host a panel. We thought long and hard about the many fascinating and complex issues surrounding and facing independent games, and before too long it was entirely clear what our panel should focus on. Winkies, of course.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: World of Hangover

Gosh thinking about numbers is hard. Can't I just crawl back into bed instead? I suppose I shouldn't shirk my fiscally focused responsibilities just because of a hangover, those cheap games aren't going to compile themselves into a handy list are they? I guess at least the bucket has two uses this weekend. SavyGamer.co.uk still exists.

Help Pirates, Says Preloaded’s Phil Stuart

Phil Stuart, creative director at Preloaded speaking at A Winter World Of Love, explained to the audience that the secrets to indie success include, "Work with pirates." Pointing out that reaching a large audience is essential for free web games, he explained that if developers want people to play their games, they need to make it easy for the pirates to steal. He recommends making…

World Of Love 2: 28th January (Next Week!)

What are you doing next Friday? If you are a UK-based person with interests in the development of indie games then you should almost certainly be attending the second World Of Love event, which is taking place at Conway Hall in London. Speakers include Honeyslug's Ricky Haggett, Alice Taylor (formerly commission editor for Channel 4's gaming projects), Nicholas "Games Brief" Lovell, Sophie Houlden, Robert Fearon,…

WoL Footage: Harris, Steenberg, Betts

So we already posted the Subversion wobblecam footage from last year's big indie event, World Of Love, but now there's much more from a bunch of other speakers. Almost certainly the most interesting of these is the talk by Cliff Harris, who speaks in plain terms about the practicalities of making a living from producing indie games. If you don't have a cash-button formula like…

See Subversion At World Of Love

What a strange headline that is. What it means is this: Introversion's forthcoming procedurally-generated espionage game, Subversion, was shown at London-based Indie convention World Of Love earlier this year. It was filmed, via the magic of wobblecam, and uploaded for the internet. That means you can watch Chris Delay play through one of the levels, and see polygonal Kieron Gillen and Eskil Steenberg rob a…

The World Of Love Report

Last Friday we attended World Of Love. It was the first of what will hopefully be many UK-based independent games development conferences organised by the folks at Pixel-Lab, and specifically Mr David Hayward, who pretty much did everything in terms of Making It Happen. What he didn't do was host the event - that was handled by the indie-supporting media cabal at Channel 4, so…

We’re At World Of Love Tomorrow

Kieron's even planning to stand up to say stuff about things. He's funny like that. The full spread of indie speaker types is pretty nifty, fortunately, as you can see here. That final line up includes Cliffski, Introversion and one Mr Eskil Steenberg, who I happened to have lunch with yesterday. That Love expansion is looking pretty amazing... but more of that another time. Those…

World Of Love KieronHelposity

British Indie Games Conference World of Love is this Friday. What does that mean? Well, mainly, indie developers are preparing to listen to wise minds. Plus me. I'm kind of reprising/updating my 2005 Freeplay Keynote "How To Use And Abuse The Gaming Press And How The Gaming Press Wants To Use And Abuse You" - which basically explained to devs how to get coverage. Since…

World Of Love: Now Even Worldier.

We've mentioned Pixel-lab's Channel-4-helped forthcoming indie-games conference before. Now we're mentioning it again. Right here. Because World Of Love has just announced a whole load of new speaker-folk, including Sophie Houlden, the Introversion folk, Amy Casson, Stephen Lavelle, Tom "nullpointer" Betts, Gobion Rowlands and - er - Me. You can get tickets here for sixty-five quid except - er - it's sold out. So making…

Calling UK Indies: World Of Love

Pixel-Lab - with a little help from Channel 4 - are putting together a brand new conference that seems pretty significant to independent games development in the UK. They're calling it World of Love. I asked David Hayward from Pixel-Lab to explain the concept and he's provided us with the evolving story behind the project, which you can read below. In brief: UK Indies deserve…
