The Werks, 45 Church Road, Hove
For the first talk Aleks Krotoski will be talking about Spaceship:
Spaceship! is a text adventure built by the collective hivemind of The Guardian gamesblog's community. You remember text adventures, of course; they're those brilliant interactive fiction stories that usually end with you cornered by a dagger-wielding, angry gnome in a dark underground passageway, and a whole bunch of syntax errors scrolling up the screen.
You thought they were amazing? This one's better, I promise. Why? Because we're a bunch of schmoes who've never done anything quite like this before, but we want to see what it's like to make a game rather than just play one.
Then we shall have several demos (along the lines of previous DemoCamps), but with a gaming theme:
Following Aleks’ main talk we’ll have a set of shorter 10 minute demos:
- Lightsaber mobile phone duelling by Marko (Lastminute.com Labs)
- Fighting Mini-sumo robots by Emily
- In-development 3D iPhone game + backstory by Dominic
- Flash 3D Snow and Xmas games by Seb (PluginMedia)
- Eye-controlled Pong by Ben Rubinstein (CogApp)
Ribot will be sponsoring this event with "Festive Alcohol".

All in all the event went really well. Thanks to everyone for helping out and/or just being there! Looking forward to more events next year - including of course the 5K app.
