INTERPLAY Arcade/Conference Reception Post-Mortem

After I got back to Chicago from Toronto, I had another event I was showing Relativity at (last one for now, promise :) )

INTERPLAY is a graduate student conference on game studies jointly organized by the University of Chicago and Northwestern University.

The conference took place over two days, October 24th and 25th. On the first day, it was held at the University of Chicago campus, and the second day, it was held at Northwestern.

I didn’t go to the actual conference itself as I had just gotten back from Gamercamp and was quite exhausted.

At the end of the second day, there was a reception held at Jackson Junge Gallery in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The reception was an arcade style event, and a number of different games by Chicago-based developers were being shown there.

The other games included: Pop Methodology OneWe Are Chicago, Tango in Paradise Simulator, and A Fitting.

I arrived at 6 PM to set up. A table was provided, along with a large-screen TV, and an HDMI cable. This is what my set up looked like:


As I still had a few days left in the loan period for the laptops from Alienware, which were originally requested for Gamercamp, I was able to use them for the show at Interplay (Thanks Alienware! :) )

Here are some photos from the event:
