Come Join Our Chat With Papo & Yo Creator On March 9


If you happen to live in Victoria, British Columbia or are planning to attend the Games Without Frontiers event on March 9th, come join our chat with Papo & Yo creator Vander Caballero (joining us through Skype) where we’ll discuss the story, game’s design, development history, metaphors, and fan/critical reception.

Join our chat with Vander as part of our indie game screenings of independent games that show the power of video game technology to bring people together and improve the world. As many of you know, I’ve been a vocal supporter of Papo & Yo since it’s release last year; it was a game that tackled social issues in an interactive manner and had left an impression on me personally.

Our chat with Vander will be held live at the David Strong Building (Room C116)  University of Victoria on March 9, 2013 at noon.

More information about our game screenings and Games Without Frontiers after the break.

In addition, we’ll also be screening critically acclaimed and innovative independent titles such as:
  • Papo & Yo (PS3) – Known for its reflection on real issues through metaphors and gameplay.
  • DLC Quest (Xbox 360/PC) – A short, but incredibly funny satire on the video game industry’s hotly-debated DLC practices.
  • The Unfinished Swan (PS3) – A storybook like experience that makes use of colour and exploration.
  • Coma (PC F2P) – A unique and stylish art-house game that stands where the character travels his subconscious mind into waking reality.
  • One Chance (PC F2P) – An interesting Flash-based game where the player has six days before the world ends. What he does in those six days may be reflective of the player’s personality.
  • Journey (PS3) – A beautiful, award-winning indie game that relies on exploration.

I hope to see you guys there. Games Without Frontiers is a rare event where professors, grad students, undergraduates, high-school students, local game designers and curious citizens of Victoria will gather to explore, discuss, and marvel at the power of video-game technology in bringing people together to improve the world.
