Double Fine have had their (biannual?) Amnesia Fortnight take place over the last few weeks, which is a great way to generate originalideas for future games. This year’s fortnight has been even more open to the public than previous years because 2 Player Productions have been documenting the progress each day.
Essentially it’s a mini-version of the documentary that the kickstarter backers have been watching for Broken Age. However, it has the advantage of being in bitesized tasty youtube chunks, and a faster pace due to the hectic nature of trying to produce a vaguely-playable prototype in less than two weeks. If you’re even slightly interested in the process of designing games it makes for excellent viewing.
In addition, Pendleton Ward designed a super ambitious/surreal prototype (that’s a concept image above), so if you’re into Adventure Time then you’re going to like it.

I just read that Billy Connolly has Parkinsons :( He’s been making me laugh since I was a kid.
Opening this Saturday, March 8th at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles, California is Andrew Hem’s solo show “Dream But Don’t Sleep.” Hem’s style is a one of a kind, immediate aesthetic signature that pursues the dreamlands that have resulted from his upbringing in a war torn Cambodia as well as the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. The work presented here in “Dream But Don’t Sleep" seems to find Andrew at his best yet and poises him as one of the leaders in New Contemporary art.
