I just started writing this entry and realized the last update about the project was two months ago. It’s been a while! It’s been a while since we were writing here every month to tell you about the release of a new chapter, the event I had attended to, or the new interviewees…
During the last months we have been working in some projects to promote The Gamer Inside, both in and outside of Spain. We cannot say anything about the date for our new website yet, but it seems it would most likely be September. Labor market conditions (and many other events) in Spain as well as some health problems in the website collaborators’ team forced us to delay the release date, but in the end we think you will love the result, because it is worth all the hard work and commitment shown. Your patience will be rewarded.
Since we published the last chapter in May, everything has been a little crazy. This is what we have been up to and what we are going to do: Continuar leyendo
Hello de@r re@ders!
We’re back again to update you on the project. In fact, if we had to sum up this past month at The Gamer Inside, we’d say that it’s been a little of everything, we’ve been looking at the feedback on the memory pilot chapter, and also working on the culture pilot chapter, the future web and some interviews with interesting people that were long overdue; as you can see, we haven’t had much time to get bored:

Hello de@r re@ders!
How are you? Here we are a month on with some news of how the project is progressing! And wow! What a January we’ve had; it’s been non-stop, guys!
As those who read me regularly here will know, I went to Madrid late last January to present, for the very first time, the preliminary work from the series we’re planning to launch very shortly. So around 100 people congregated at the “Matadero de Madrid” on the afternoon of January 29 this year, all of whom were games fans, but I don’t suppose they had any idea of what they were about to see. At least that’s the feeling I had, as we’re not just talking about a new video game blog/web/podcast here; this is a product that (as far as I know) has never been seen in Spain before (nor do I know of a similar thing anywhere else)… a documentary web series about video games and video gamers… So everyone was waiting in an air of excitement, I was even more eagerly anticipating their reactions to the 30 minutes of film that took just over a year of hard work to see the light of day. After presenting the project, in both English and Spanish (so other people from outside who had come to the Game Philosophy Conference could understand), it was time for the film show; the lights went down and the faces of the audience transformed, as if by magic, to reflect what we had been working on with such dedication and enthusiasm. There was laughter, surprise and some thrilling moments, but above all, the faces of the entire audience expressed satisfaction and delight at what we had achieved. This experience became so much more precious for me when interviewees who had participated in the project were among those congratulating us, and told us what they thought about it. They felt even happier to be part of this project, and so pleased that we had done something that had matched up to their expectations. Continuar leyendo
