“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” A. Nin & GGJ 2014

The quote by Anaïs Nin (Seduction of the Minotaur) is the theme of the Global Game Jam 2014. Crucible Studio’s director Mika ‘Lumi’ will be judging the Jam outcomes as a member of the jury in the  Cologne Game Lab event on 26 Sunday 2014 and give the talk “Play-within-play” on interactive drama on Monday.

(While the Minotaur quote has been referred to Talmudic origins, also, of course, Hamlet considers the reflection of mankind itself as the  purpose of ‘playing’:

“…the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the
first and now, was and is, to hold, as ’twere, the
mirror up to nature…”)
