Narrative Gameplay: How games should (not) tell stories - by Fabian Fischer

Gamasutra.com Blogs - 11 May 2017 - 7:51am
Modern-day AAA games rely on traditional, linear storytelling. While they are rightfully praised for their cinematic qualities, the gameplay is consequently lacking in substance and dynamics. How can games tell stories without hurting their core identity?

I do my best to make sure that the stories I post are backed up by sources. That’s why you rarely ever see me post rumors. It’s just not what I’m about. I don’t want anyone saying I’m fake news. But when playing Fake News!, you will probably be saying that a lot. From the […]

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: Agiledrop going to the nearest Drupal Camp

Planet Drupal - 10 May 2017 - 9:57pm
After a long travel to Baltimore, where two of our team members (Commercial and Operations director to be precise) attended DrupalCon Baltimore, we will have a much shorter distance to overcome this time. In fact, we'll be going to the nearest Drupal Camp possible. That's in Zagreb, where our development team will attend Drupal Heart Camp Zagreb. Since we are located in Ljubljana, Slovenia, our nearest destination would be our coast, where there was once a Drupal Camp Alpe-Adria. But since the Camp is not taking place there anymore – we discussed that with one of its organizers Janez Urevc… READ MORE

Battle Poker Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Tabletop Gaming News - 10 May 2017 - 3:00pm
Back when the poker craze really started to take off, a group of my gaming buddies and I would get together for poker nights. We just would just have a nickel ante, so losing $10 over the course of a night meant you really lost your shirt (we were poor gamers, after all). We’d play […]

FFW Agency: A Week of Learning & Growth at DrupalCon Baltimore

Planet Drupal - 10 May 2017 - 12:40pm
A Week of Learning & Growth at DrupalCon Baltimore leigh.anderson Wed, 05/10/2017 - 19:40

It’s hard to believe that another DrupalCon has come and gone — it feels like just yesterday when we were mourning the passing of Drupal 6 in New Orleans and unveiling our new branding in Los Angeles. DrupalCon Baltimore was a success for us, and we wanted to share some of our memories from the event.

Our Week at DrupalCon

It was an honor to introduce Dries on Tuesday morning at DrupalCon. We were grateful that we had the opportunity to discuss two projects that are near and dear to our hearts: The Open Y Drupal distribution, and Drupal Global Training Days.

We were also thrilled to have so many visitors drop by our booth. It was great seeing so many old friends and making new ones, and we’d like to say congratulations again to our raffle winners: Mark (pictured below) & Dennis, who won Apple Watches, and Patrick, who won an Amazon Echo.

FFW Session Recordings

We had a great time sharing our knowledge in trainings, sessions, and BOFs. If you didn’t catch the FFW crew in action, you can watch recordings of our sessions here:

  1. Anti-Crash Course: How to Avoid Drupal’s Most Common Pitfalls
  2. Using Drupal to Power the YMCA
  3. Scaling and Sharing: Building Custom Drupal Distributions for Federated Organizations
  4. Less Is More: What Modules, Features or API's Should We Cut From Core?
  5. Docksal: Better than VMs
Farewell, Baltimore; Hello, Vienna!

As always, we stayed for the community. We were heartened to see so many people working together to grow the project, navigate new territory, and have thoughtful conversations about the future of the Drupal software and the community’s governance. We’re looking forward to the continued discussions about the community’s structure and future; if you’d like to participate, you can find future meeting information here.

It was a pleasure to sponsor such a great event. We’re looking forward to seeing who we meet and what great conversations we have across the pond at DrupalCon Vienna this September.
