Link: Africade

An interesting window into a game design culture on the other side of the world: Africade, a tumblr with links to some brief movies and articles on an indie game development scene in South Africa.

I was particularly struck by “The Choosatron,” a choose-your-own-adventure game played on what appears to be a modified receipt printer. One of the articles points out that this makes it possible to take one’s play home afterward; playing the game inherently involves creating a permanent record of the experience. It’s a fascinating approach.
