Stoking the Difference Engine

Unicorn Justice Fighter / Unicorn Robber Baron by Una Lee, one of the games created during first Difference Engine incubator

I’m looking forward to my whirlwind trip to Toronto this week, for a few days with some Canadians who have developed new initiatives to bring more diversity to video game creation.  First is a stop at the TIFF Bell Lightbox to give a short presentation-conversation at TIFF Nexus, followed by a mixer with the members and friends of the brand-new support network Dames Making Games.

Next I’m mentoring the second cohort of Difference Engine game creators.  I can’t say enough good things about this incubator project initiated by the Hand Eye Society.  They are tackling head-on the challenge of increasing diversity among game makers, and I’m honored to be a part of it.  I’m really looking forward to seeing and responding to what the second group have created so far.

On my way back from Toronto I’m stopping in New York where I will visit the Carsten Höller Experience exhibit at the New Museum, and I hold a precious ticket to Sleep No More.  It’s going to be a really interesting week.
