Us and the Game Industry – how indie games are the new counter-culture

Us and the Game Industry – how indie games are the new counter-culture | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"Set for release this winter, the documentary film Us and the Game Industry promises to explore the motivations of indie developers like thatgamecompany. Filmmaker Stephanie Beth tells us what she learned from a new era of rebellious entertainment"...


This article makes a great companion piece to yesterday's Bang, bang, you're dead: how Grand Theft Auto stole Hollywood's thunder.  Taken together, the articles provide an interesting look at the diversity of content & companies within today's gaming industry.


I also like the glimpse we get of the New Zealand filmmaker, Stephanie Beth, who made Us and the Game Industry because she "wanted another big project," "wanted to spend [her] sixties productively".

1st Large Scale Augmented Reality in New Zealand - Vodafone VNZMA App VIDEO

In Vodafone NZ's implementation - claimed to be "the first large scale augmented reality implementation of its kind in New Zealand" - staff in its retail stores have been issued with T-shirts bearing music-related graphics that are recognised by Android and iPhone apps that have been made available for download.  When the app is installed in a phone and its camera pointed at the person wearing the T-shirt, the T-shirt's image appears on the screen of the phone, animated and with accompanying music.  Vodafone developed the app in conjunction with Smudge Apps in Christchurch.

Journal: Creative Technologies [Digital Storytelling] | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

The theme of this edition is digital storytelling. The papers in this edition are a pertinent reminder that communication and expression – of idea, experience, mood – is at the heart of human interaction with digital worlds, and each thing communicated is a facet of a larger narrative.
