Just got a word from Julien Dorra, one of the organisers of ArtGame weekend happening June 4-6th in Paris, France. It’s a 54 hours creative challenge that brings together 60 developers, game designers and artists to create a dozen mobile ArtGames.
By combining Art + Gameplay + Open collaboration, the ArtGame weekend will offer a intense teamwork experience and new interdisciplinary contacts to a variety of developers, artists and video game professionals. We have a team of around 10 coaches to help the teams get the most of the weekend. (and the food is completely taken care of, too, IMHO a real plus when you need to concentrate.)
(there is only half of the tickets left, good sign — but there is also only 2 weeks before the event !)
Here is what’s happening:
54h of challenge to create apps combining gameplay and artistic vision: the mobile ArtGames.
60 participants : developers, game designers, artists …
A jury and 5000 euro first prize, for further development.
Sounds like a must if you live in Paris. Head over to http://artgameweekend.com for more info. Slideshow of the programme embeded below.
