VideoBrains is a host of cool talks, on a Tuesday (TUESDAY, it's our Thing now) night. We're now settled at our new location, Secret Weapon in Stratford! Exciting stuff. Twitter hashtag = #VideoBrains
Tickets on the door will be £10 if available.
Alice Bell The Fuckeduplet 3
Alice continues her residency with her third talk about how, where and why games are so spectacularly fucked up.
Alex Davis No Play
We live in a world where people don't have time to play anymore, they watch simulations of people playing instead. Sometimes it's a simulation of a simulator that creates simulations. This can't be real.... OR CAN IT?
Ben Meredith The Horror of Knowing
A deep look at how Inside and Gone Home use revelation, light and tension to create an atmosphere of fear, even when bucking an old horror adage by 'showing us the monster'.
Josh West Condemned to fear mannequins
We like to talk a big game about how transformative videogames can be, but have you ever considered how easily one can ruin a life? Let’s talk Condemned: Criminal Origins and how it made a generation (okay, probably just me) afraid of shopping centres and cry at the sight of mannequins.
Anna Turner “Of course, it has to be horror!”: Fearing the Uncanny in Mystic Messenger
Understanding the Uncanny can be key to unlocking the quiet horror which lies beneath the surface of this popular otome game. Join us for a doppelgänger’s guide to dating anime boys.
Gareth Monk My Life Is Strange: The changeable nature of fear in video games
When your life changes, so does what scares you. I'll be speaking about how video games and their play styles can reflect this, plus a look at how this reflects upon my own life. OooooOoooo spoooooky!
We can't refund your ticket if you don't attend on the night, but if we have to cancel the event for some reason, we will refund you.
Please be here for the first talk at 7pm - This is so important I could say it twice.
