Game On! LA Game Space Levels Up

On first glance a vacant warehouse in downtown Los Angeles might read as derelict industrial space, but look a little closer and you can see the glimmer of a nascent world class media lab. Three weeks ago, LA Game Space stormed onto Kickstarter with an ambitious proposal to transform the raw space that they'd scouted into an interdisciplinary, nonprofit workshop for facilitating research, artist residencies, exhibitions and educational initiatives in and around gaming. In order to fund the required renovations and the operating budget for their first year the LA Game Space team is looking for the hefty sum of $250,000. While the campaign took a while to gain momentum, it has attracted $110,000 in donations over the last ten days since announcing that it would be bolstering an already amazing experimental 30 video game pack with the next Keita Takahashi (Katamari Damacy) and Adam Saltsman (Canabalt) title in exchange for extremely modest donations. CAN caught up with LA Game Space's Directors Daniel Rehn and Adam Robezzoli and advisor Jeremy Douglass to learn more about their venture.
