LA Game Space – Kickstarter


A brilliant idea for an indie game think tank has arisen in the form of LA Game Space.

LA Game Space is to be a non-profit centre for the different stages of games development such as the art, design and research, it allows for a diverse group of people from different backgrounds to discover the very potential of games whilst working together.
Now instead of being a forum for people of different skills to collaborate, like there are many already, LA Game Space will be a real centre, yes that’s right, IRL.
The space that they’ll have will be segregated into four core activities:

  • Exhibitions
    This is to show off their work which will hopefully take the potential of video games to a whole new dimension, as well as to gain feedback for future projects.
  • Talk/Workshops
    Here skilled individuals from many different fields can get up, explain their work, teach, enlighten and inspire others with their projects.
    This added with workshops on gaining particular skills and how to creatively imagine innovative game designs will only mean great things for the game market.
    One of the greatest things about this however is that most of these events will be archived and spread freely online.
  • Artist Residency
    This is where game designers will be working with practitioners from all sectors of work, all with an interest in the concept to explore.
    From this they will develop “Highly experimental game projects”.
  • Research Labs
    Using this, individuals will be able to gain feedback from live video game recordings as well as useful meta data such as “Button-press recording”, “Pulse rate monitoring” and “Eye + Face tracking” (Little scary).

After an astounding three years of planning, they finally want your help in founding this service and what better place than Kickstarter?

Now at the time of writing after just under a month they have hit there goal of $250,000 and so you ask; why do I bother post this now?
Because I believe with more backers and larger funding it can be a better success and will spread worldwide.

We need this if we want amazing creative and serious “OMG” games.

The benefits for the founders on this Kickstarter are a no-brainer, pledge $15 and you will get “A fun new game by Keita Takahashi”, an Indie Classics bundle including the Basement Collection and Super Crate Box – Xmas Edition and on top of all that, 30 new games from developers previously behind titles such as QWOP, BIT TRIP and Adventure Time!
Pledge even more and the rewards get even greater.

I suggest you waste no more time and head to the Kickstarter page and check it out.
