So there's certain news tidbits that I should've been rabidly noting down here lately [think: this, that, and the other], but due to deadline insanity and crazyhuge workloads, instead I've found myself in a-neglect-my-blog rut... …until now. I'm the very definition of thrilled [look it up in the dictionary: betcha there's one o' my Virtual Reality avatars sitting there looking right smug] to be showing three Virtual Reality works at this 2017 International Festival of Virtual Reality hosted by the cultural association "
Seems it's turning out to be hellova year here, and we're only 4 months in. So far in 2017, here at MBD we've had Digital-Fiction-Award-shortlisted projects, and honorable mentions, and theorising all over the MDB shop: most of which have been centered on the release of "All the Delicate Duplicates", on which we hit the big red Steam publish button in February.
Amazingly tingle-fueled news: All The Delicate Duplicates has won the Open Arcade "Best Overall Game" Award at this years Game City Festival! Three games were nominated for this Best Overall Game Award, our very own, Akuto and The Last Leviathan. In short: WOOT! Tam, our lovely Producer, accepting the Award on behalf of myself and Andy [she's dead center in the Winner line-up].
Gary interviews Tracey McGarrigan about All The Delicate Duplicates, a digital fiction game about the relationship between a father and a daughter that is strained by arcane objects that they've inherited from Aunt Mo.
Did I ever mention how terrifically and Felix-the-cat-laughing-imbuingly-impressed I was with this crew's first offering, Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist? No? Well. I should have. It's side-splitting fun-shiny, so I'm smooshingly excited to be working my way through their latest, The Temple of No. Will report back ASAP *beep*.
