Yep, consider the above title a lame attempt at summarising some of the news from my studio-neck-of-the-woods. There's just *so* *dang* *much* going on right now [both here + on the global stage too, right? In fact, in relation to what's more worthy of your attention, you're probably better off reading this or this than you are the below, but I appreciate snatching some o' ur eyeballish real-estate for a minute or two if you do choose to read on].
For those of us who are rampant #Bandersnatch fans [and I'm not talking about the Through the Looking-Glass mention, but instead the new Black Mirror/Netflix interactive Choose Your Own Adventurey film], here's a fantastic mapping of all the interactive choice points by the diligent @hlgraham1427 [warning: spoilery-mcspoilerfaces follow].

So again I find myself in the middle of an excitement-propelled update of all things Perpetual Nomads, which has been powering along on exhibiting, showcasing and archiving fronts. Here's 3 of the latest newsworthy gigs Perpetual Nomads is currently [or soon to be shown] at: For lucky Canadians, Fraser Valley Regional Library is today launching the first of three initiatives for library audiences to experience our Perpetual Nomads VR Adventure in its entirety at library locations in Delta, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford, using the HTC Vive VR system to immerse participants in the world.
So this morning a bunch of keen XR Artists met up in VR [at the gorgeous Museum of Other Realities] to explore new work that had been included in the May show, as well as a general chinwag. Turns out we did a heap more than that, and in the spirit of oversharing [heh] here's a brief take on some of the shenanigans - complete with screengrabs.
Perpetual Nomads is now available in Early Access Release! This innovative Virtual Reality Experience, coproduced by Mez Breeze Design and BradField Narrative Designs, is the next installment of the award-winning interactive story Inanimate Alice. First established in 2005, Inanimate Alice features the world traveling character Alice in her various adventures. The series is highly regarded in the digital fiction sphere and used in classrooms globally.
