The Guilty Pleasures Of A Video Game Writer [PechaKucha]

The Guilty Pleasures Of A Video Game Writer [PechaKucha]

The international design hub shares presentations about the ins and outs of the gaming industry.

Jean Snow

For nearly 8 years Steve Jaros has been lucky enough to be a working writer in the video games industry. Most recently he was nominated for best writing at the Game Developers Choice Awards for his work on the game Saints Row: The Third. Naturally, he lost to Portal 2. In this presentation (from PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 9), Steve shares some of his guilty pleasures.

Akio Aoki (Miru) covers (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) a few of his projects and products, and also shares some of the exhibitions that have featured his work.

We kick off the week with a few new posters on our Tumblr blog. Covered are the following events: PKN Halifax Vol. 11, PKN Memphis Vol. 3, PKN London Vol. 8, and PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, pictured above.

Photos and video
We have one new gallery of photos [Facebook] to share with you today, from last week’s PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22. Pictured above, a look at the warehouse-like venue.

When we approve a new PKN series, we ask the new organizer (or team) to send us a greeting video (PK founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham do the same for the city’s first event). Here’s the wonderful video from the organizers of PKN Osijek.

Today’s links include a few tips on making a PechaKucha presentation, and some nice coverage of Tulsa‘s recent first PKN.

It’s going to be a slow week — summer has officially hit — but don’t let that stop you from catching the events that are being held, like tonight’s (July 17) PKN Jacksonville Vol. 20.
