Game developers need to be part of this journey, but where is the forum for their involvement? This talk will explore this question and the common ground between game design, placemaking, and landscape architecture. About Mark Mark is a Landscape Architect (AILA) and videogame enthusiast. With a focus on bridging the gap between the Landscape profession and the Games Industry, Mark is an advocate for the integration of hybrid reality technology where experiences of the landscape can be enhanced or recreated, whilst providing social, economic and health benefits in the process. Place Jam is a digital place making consultancy that leads to the creation of location based and location exclusive games and apps. By integrating local culture and knowledge of existing places, we can challenge and empower local practitioners in multiple professions to reimagine how we activate public space with screen-based technology. Demos: Evidential - VR Major Incident Training Platform. Sean Murphy from VRMCR9 is back to show us the latest iteration of the work Evidential have been doing following their VR Crime Scene Prototype. More TBC
