  • 2015 – A retrospect

    At the end of every year, we look back at all the things we have accomplished. These ruminations can seem a bit self-fellating, but it is important to stop and take some time to reflect about the things you achieve. Otherwise, the fight to spread games as an artistic and accepted medium can seem like…

  • 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…

    »Making is fundamental to what it means to be human. We must make, create, and express ourselves to feel whole. There is something unique about making physical things.

  • 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.
