Hand Eye member and Social hoster David Fono let us know about his latest project, sure to be of interest to ARG fans:
ZED is an immersive narrative experience that simulates an end of the world scenario and encourages its participants to engage with the story through various mediums… By charting the rise and fall of ByoLogyc, a fictional biotech corporation, ZED is an investigation into the hubris of mankind in its hurry to innovate and improve itself – regardless of the price.
If you want to be involved, consider contributing to their Indiegogo campaign
, which ends in 37 hrs
. I went to an event hosted in a gallery in Yorkville and they’d pulled out all the stops: great improv from the actors demoing the “products” and a lot of production value.
Also ending this weekend is Scott Carruthers’ mesmerizing Parallax Scroll
show at Harbourfront. This game-referencing cartoon universe is proof that you don’t need 3D models to create a compelling and immersive world: a vision and a sharpie will do just as well.
But maybe you’re too busy planning for the impending Toronto Game Jam
, May 11-13th? Well, you probably know about the IGDA’s next event then: the awesomely named “We All Die Together
” TOJam Pre-mortem and Matchmaking Event on Thursday. If you need a programmer or an artist for a future game project you’ll definitely want to fill in their online survey
to take part.
