Sherwood and Back Again

Sherwood and Back Again was an interactive experience designed to encourage the general public to engage with #RobinHoodDay in Nottingham.

Tweeting with the #RobinHoodDay hashtag would help fire an arrow further around the world; with the aim being to fire it around the world once.

Tweets and Twitter user profile images would appear as characters in the game which was streamed and displayed at the Nottingham Video Game Arcade as a part of the Game City festival.

Natural Election

Following my dissertation (which you can read more about here) I worked again with Hitpoint Games and the Nottingham Video Game Arcade to produce a 'simulation' of the UK 2015 General Election.

MPs would brawl in the House of Lords, with the amount of MPs spawned being based on how much Twitter was talking about a particular party while using the #GE2015 hashtag.

Volatile Element

One of the aspects I was looking forward to the most when I started University in 2012 at the University of Lincoln was being to able to participate in student game jams. A group of friends and I decided we were going to enter the 'CanJam' on 3rd March 2013.

Since then I've jumped at every oppurtunity to participate in a game jam ran by the University. I've now participated in over 10 game jams.

Having entered so many game jams I thought it would be worthwhile creating a website to document them all.
