  • Stop and PLAY

    We often forget to look around in the cities we live in because we are too preoccupied with our errands. We just transfer from A to B, not looking around, absorbed in our minds or mobile phones. It is only when we come to a new exciting place that our sense of exploration awakens. Suddenly…

  • Playing drones as instruments

    We have long been trying to bridge the art world and games. We have been focusing on exploring the fringes of the digital medium. Hacking drones to play music is one such experiment. There is a zeitgeist surrounding the recent surge of toy quadcopters [toy helicopters with 4 rotors that can stabilise itself], colloquially called…

  • Games Beyond Washing Machines

    So some of us went to the Philosophy of Computer Games Conference (PCG) in Berlin, and participated as presenters, panelists, and audience. What an opportunity to not only discuss how to philosophise with video games, and how games turn us into colonialists, but to catch up with old CphGC friends dispersed around the world (Amani Naseem, now living…

    w00t is closing down W00t started three years ago, as a collaboration between Indgreb, Vallekilde Højskole and Copenhagen Game Collective.

  • Lyst 2015

    Our bodies might have moved from Vartiosaari, the Finnish fairytale island, ticks, amazing people, crazy game ideas and freezing nights in tents, but our hearts and minds are still lingering at Lyst 2015 in Helsinki. This year’s Lyst was the first Lyst co-organized by our Scandinavian network. We held our Symposium in Helsinki city center…
