So, here are some gamey things you can do over the next month or so, if you’re in London:
On April 24, Fire Hazard are running Suspected, a half-hour game commissioned by Sci-Fi London. We have no idea what the game involves, and the description is pretty enigmatic: Choose a challenge: you can compete in stealth and deception, or rely on your speed and agility. Choose a codename. And, if it comes to it, be prepared to choose a side. £5 entry fee, mysterious descriptive text, the South Bank at 11am on Easter Sunday morning… is it a chase? A hunt? A high-tech egg-rolling competition? Only one way to find out.
On 14 May, GameCamp 4 is running at a new venue: London South Bank University. As usual, there’ll be an awful lot of very interesting people hanging around and talking about games, all day. It’s £15, and there seem to be a very few tickets left.
And coming up later in the year, the Science Museum are putting together a mini-festival on the theme of gaming. They are programming at the moment, and interested in commissioning anything from installation pieces to pervasive games that run throughout the museum.
