Let the gaming begin

Troy Innocent from Swinburne U is the City of Melbourne Knowledge Fellow for 2017. Dr Innocent has created a “location based augmented reality game” which involves “people finding codes hidden in Melbourne laneways.” Apparently, it’s “a way of using game play to activate city spaces.” The game, “Wayfinder Live 2017” will be “showcased” at Melbourne International Games Week, from October 22. The week includes the Education in Games Summit sponsored by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, on October 27. Featured speakers include “new media theorist and creative practise researcher” Olivia Guntarik from RMIT.

Thursday is also International Animation Day, on which the Victoria College of the Arts will showcase student productions, plus new animated shorts “from around the globe.”
