Igfest is a festival like no other. Where other festivals have mud, crippling ticket prices and questionable hygiene, we have Robots, Zombies, Ninja Cows, Sweetshop Bank Heists, Biblical Sized Water Fights and Powdered Paint. Lots of Powdered Paint.

We’re back for the fifth time September 5th-8th, bigger, ballsier and more bonkers than ever before, running the streets of Bristol’s Old City. The infamous zombie chase game, 2.8 Hours Later, returns for its last ever showing in Bristol. Two new headliners, the Cargo Remix and Incitement, will make their WORLD DEBUT and then there’s the igfest fringe to explore, dozens of beautiful games wrapped up in a party in Castle Park 8th September. Games, great food and fine ales - what more could you want on a sunny afternoon? Bring a rug, a picnic and your plimsols/pocket money. Headline tickets are £15 & £28, the Festival Fringe games free to £5.

Bourjois Belle at London Fashion Week.

Back in February we partnered media agency MEC in coming up with a neat little game for Bourjois, the French cosmetics brand as part of their London fashion week campaign. We delivered a ladyhunt game that owed quite a bit to our previous GPS driven projects Moosehunt and the Hat Game. Now the game has been nominated for an award at the Cannes Advertising Festival for technical innovation. Check the great little video from MEC. It explains all. We would also like to point out the plastic dog was not our idea.

Cargo - the Orchid Remix

Digg Facebook Twitter LinkedIn

Some of you may have played Cargo over the years, an escape game involving menacing cops, creepy forgers and a boat ride, for the lucky few. Well, earlier this year we were approached by The Mixed Reality Lab at Nottingham University, who are part of the Orchid research project along with Nottingham, Southampton and Oxford Universities. They build A.I systems and play with robots. We had a techgasm. So we remixed Cargo to trial some of their ideas about the applications of such technology for disaster relief (as we are the masters of disaster). This is the next step in the future of street gaming.
