Game Masters Forum on TV!

After the very successful Game Masters Forum at Te Papa at the start of March several of us were interviewed by José Barbosa of Media3. José tells me the segment should air in the next show on Wednesday 20th March at 11:15pm. Set your PVR to record it now!

Or you could stay up and watch it I suppose.

EDIT: This segment has been moved to Wednesday 27th March at the same time. Look out for it then, and on the Media3 web site afterwards.

EDIT: The show aired on Wed 27th, and is now available for on demand viewing. The piece starts at 21 min 15 sec, and I feature from 24 min 50 sec.

Game Masters - The Forum

I had the great experience of participating on a panel discussing NZ game preservation at Game Masters - The Forum on Monday morning. This was a fantastic event which brought together people from many areas; game developers, collectors, archivists and researchers, all with an interest in maintaining our digital heritage. The panel was lead by Melanie Swalwell from Flinders University, Shane Farrow of the NZ Film Archive, Adrian Knightly from Te Papa and Alan Bell of NZGamer.com.

I thought the panel went very well, and a lot of good questions were asked.
