We took some time out and went to a talk at Tate Britain about Narrative in Videogames. It was pretty interesting, and involved such luminaries as Charles Cecil (of Broken Sword fame), and Dave Gibbons (of Watchmen notoriety!).
One interesting point was about audio, and how that’s so important to a game, and yet seems to be left till last.
I wondered what the makers of Guitar Hero, Rez, Vib Ribbon, Surf Rider et al think of that?
It’s also relevant to what we’re doing here at QS. While the basic shape of one of upcoming games is there, and it’s a classic, it’s the music that really shapes the experience.
It’s not a music game though!
We’ll leave you with that taster for now! More soon!Tags: App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, Quantum Sheep, Shooter, space
