Interact with virtual jellyfish who will teach you about the challenges of waste plastic, hone your French Grammar skills to retain your cover as a secret agent, view the University campus through the eyes of water pistol wielding Geese in game ‘Capture the Campus’ and put your storytelling to the test in Ben Tailby’s ‘Online Consequences’. The leading researchers in games and interactive media share their completed projects and works-in-progress to inspire you to explore innovation at the intersection of application of games, storytelling, eSports, broadcast and the rich space where they converge.
