Barbetween

I failed to mention, six months ago when it was new, that I made another very short IF piece called Barbetween. Here’s a little trailer I made for it last month: I made that trailer because the Independent Games Festival...

No Show videos online

Speaking of the 2012 No Show Conference, all twelve of its talks and presentations are now online for public enjoyment and enrichment. Visit its presentation page with any Flash-capable browser, and click a talk’s Continue reading button to make its...

Mammals needed

No long article from me this week; am setting up with a new client to earn money to buy more time to think about games for your pleasure, dear reader. But here a couple of small items nonetheless: Anna Anthropy’s...

Setting as Character in Narrative Games (PAX East 2011)

Part of Saturday’s proceedings at the 2011 IF Summit that conveniently adjoined this year’s PAX East. In adventures and other explorational games, the setting is often the most eloquent and memorable character: an island, a castle, a starship. How do...

Non-Gamers Gaming (PAX East 2011)

Here’s the first of three 2011 IF Summit event videos that The Gameshelf shot at PAX East. Unlike last year’s videos, I actually prepared a little for these, so there’s no sudden cut-offs due to battery death. I’ll also try...

Episode #8 - Modern Interactive Fiction

Please enjoy Episode 8 of The Gameshelf’s video series. It’s about modern interactive fiction. Interactive Fiction (a.k.a. text adventures), a curious cross-medium blending videogames and literature, defined computer entertainment at the start of the PC era. While it’s been decades...

PAX East 2010: The IF videos (mostly)

Here is the video my Flip camcorder shot of three of the IF-related PAX East-ish events. I apologize for the wobbly quality; I didn't arrive at PAX with plans to record anything, but found myself deputized into a videographer role...

Nick Montfort introduces IF

Today in Youtube... oh, I'll just quote Nick: An short introduction to interactive fiction (text adventures, such as Adventure and Infocom's games), the history of the form, how they are played, and a little about what's involved in writing them....

2009 in Gameshelf-TV land

Well, we only ended up doing one episode this year, contrary to my hopes last fall. But production of the next show is well underway, and it's as different from the Diplomacy show as that one was different from the...

Embittered Movie Review: "Metro Polis"

If you enjoy my game videos, perhaps you will like this. The idea for this literally woke me up in the pre-dawn hours last Saturday, and I found the time to put it together last night. There actually is a...

Conquer by the Clock

Another little bit of behind-the-scenesery for you: I had a great deal of fun raiding The Prelinger Archives, a collection of public domain films, to fill out the Diplomacy episode's visuals. I expect it to be a well I'll return...

DoKashiteru's music

I just happened across the homepage of DoKashiteru, a duo whose music I have used liberally in recent video projects - Gameshelf included. They put much of their work into the Creative Commons under remix-friendly licenses, so I plan on...

Diplomacy: Deleted Scenes (confessionals!)

As my disheveled and shaky-cammed head at the top of the above video explains, our shoot of the Diplomacy episode featured a "confessional cam" that players could operate in private in order to spill their guts about the game,...

Crazy "Are you the Traitor?" ad

Because I'm always a fan of mixing games with creative video work, and because the folks at Looney Labs have been friends of the Gameshelf crew for far longer than there's been a Gameshelf, I have to share this ad...

Key Hero and the Pooping Turtle Story

My friend Christopher Cotton (who played in The Gameshelf's review of Werewolf) has lately been teaching programming to kids, as part of the Young Scholars Institute in Tennessee's Franklin School District. They're using Java and Processing, the latter a new-hotness...

Video game movie fake trailers

A brief moment of link-spamming. Which we don't do very much here at the Gameshelf, because we're all into critical analysis and deep esoteric ludic discourse 'n'all. But occasionally, I have to say, these videos from collegehumor.com make me die...

Jmac's Arcade #6 - Pac-Man

This is the first Episode of my show Jmac's Arcade that I've made since 2007, which means it's also the first one I've made since the launch of this blog. I hope you enjoy it. If you do, you...

Kandy-Kolored custom dinos and other stuff

Starting to edit footage for the next couple of Gameshelf episodes. This is the first time I've done editing since launching this blog, so expect me to post some fun scraps from the cutting room floor while I work. While...

Real-life M.U.L.E.

Amazing video of a quadruped robot, the "BigDog", created by Boston Dynamics. It can carry up to 340 pounds of pack-weight, and immediately reminded me of the title character from M.U.L.E....
