The Malthusian Paradox: Placard Workshop

Spend time working with artists to create placards to protest the use of GM foods to control populations, then join Amber and protest “The Friendliness Trust”:– corporation or culprit?

The Malthusian Paradox is an ARG (Alternate Reality Game) that can be played on line and in real life. It’s like being right inside a thriller where you are one of the characters. The game will take participants on a breathless journey through a world of intrigue, mystery and surprise. They will solve clues, interact with characters and events and become part of a global audience that works together to save the world. They will be able to interact with the game by email, telephone, twitter and also in person at various live events.

Reads like a Seven

Seven celebrated writers and journalists on video games invite you to an evening of readings from their work – kind of like a slam poetry event except where every poem is prose about Halo and the only slamming that goes on is in the comments underneath each performance. Funny, affecting, sad, exciting - every piece read out on the night takes a different view of video games and the culture that surrounds them. Featuring Kieron Gillen, Keith Stuart, Leigh Alexander, Christian Donlan, Simon Parkin, Ste Curran and Cara Ellison

I used to be a games journalist whose bio read that he was in an expert in "literally everything, ever." I'm now old enough to be embarrassed at that, but it's still my area of interest. I write comics and co-own a games-website. I like stuff and things.
