The Coral Cave Exhibition in Annecy, France

Last days, we have been working a lot to get the first Coral Cave exhibition ready. More than 60 watercolors backgrounds, animation sheets, comic pages, sketches, articles, … will be displayed at Bonlieu Public Library. We aim to give an insight into the creation of our adventure game, from the paper to the screen. It will also be possible to play the demo.

The artworks are currently being framed.
The exhibition will open on April the 15th.

Warcraft-themed exhibition hits Beijing

Video game adapted film “Warcraft” is debuting in China on June 8. But ahead of its premiere, hundreds of original props and costumes went on display on Saturday in Sanlitun, one of the most flourishing business regions in Beijing, attracting thousands of enthusiastic fans.

The large-scale exhibition is divided into two zones –“Alliance” and “Horde”. “Warcraft” fans can have fun in a virtual reality experience room and a conceptual arts wall. Detailed life-size character statues of King Llane and Durotan accompany the exhibits. If you are in Beijing right now, make sure to be part of the thrilling scene!

This is me playing Star Fox 64. Technically it was the Training Mode. Honestly, though, holding the NES controller felt really good. Last time I held one I was like friggin 3 years old.

Yeah, not gonna lie, I hate getting my picture taken. But this time was just like whatever. Anyway, sorry for the slightly shitty lighting, I couldn’t use my flash. Museum rules….

SMITHSONIAN ADVENTURES

Well

I performed in the smithsonian

very exciting

I was really pumped to start like gushing about how amazing it was and stuff and how exciting and nervous the whole thing was, but then the internet was being weird.

But I can still say how amazingly awesome it was.

There were so many people

the goddamn place was packed

and yeah, the place the Smithsonian put up for us was echoey as hell and the instruments with higher tones kinda got drowned out by us lower-toned guys (and basses as always can’t compete with brass) but everybody seemed really happy to be listening and shit

it was just

so amazing

augh.

So beforehand, for lunch, I found a Potbelly’s and I bought a good sandwich and orange soda inthose glass bottles. And I set it down on the ground so I could sit in my chair and eat, back at the Smithsonian, and then my fellow bassist comes up and says something I can’t quite hear but I go like ‘oh, she wants me to move my bass?’ and I stand up. My foot nudges the bottle over and it freaking explodes.

I didn’t realize it would do that

it was really sad

for me

I was really sad.

I mean, yeah, it was glass, but I set it on the ground for the purpose of it not exploding when I knocked it over and stuff.

but

it exploded

and I was sad.

Not a big fan of soda in general, but you know

loss made the heart grow fonder

I loved that soda

in its death.

Also it turned out that the other bassist just wanted to tell me that she moved my bass, although I could see my bass really clearly from where I was sitting and she didn’t need to tell me, though I understood why she wanted to.

I was still somewhat bitter at her though.

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland, California is ready to join the digital age. Currently housed in a 103-year-old office space in an out-of-the-way neighborhood, this nonprofit video game museum can be bigger, better, and more accessible. Their mission is to preserve video game history through playable exhibitions, and to educate and inspire the next generation of game developers by offering free programming and classes for the public — now they need your help to grow.

“THE ART OF VIDEO GAMES” is an exhibit that the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia is currently holding, until May 10th. It covers the history of video games and has videos of a few popular ones on certain systems (such as Okami and Legend of Zelda and World of Warcraft), and there are a few set up for people to play. There’s also a room with classic arcade games to play and a couple of other consoles, and a station for people to draw their favorite/original video game characters, which was a lot of fun. If you’re in the area and able to, I’d recommend checking it out and taking a look online for more information. I’d provide a link, but I’m on mobile and won’t have access to a computer any time soon, but a quick search on Google should get you there. Seriously, check it out if you can. It’s fun to see the start of video games and how far they’ve come over the years.
