PlayfulPlayful is a one-day conference about games, happening on Friday the 31st of October, 2008 in Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London. Add it to Upcoming or Facebook or, you know, just register.

Focusing on the creative and cultural dimensions, Playful examines game design as both a discipline and craft, offering different perspectives on its current and future possibilities.

I’ll be presenting (I’m on second apparently, following the inimitable James Wallis) and I’ll be showing how Rock Band / Guitar Hero controllers can, with very little money, time and effort, become actual musical instruments. This will be the first conference for which ‘pack plastic guitar, real amp and leads’ are on my TODO list.
