The Guilty Pleasures Of A Video Game Writer [PechaKucha]

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

Presentations
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.

Posters
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.

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

Calendar
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.
