Mecanika featured on Decouverte

Mecanika just aired on the scientific TV show Decouverte, on Radio-Canada. You can see the 10 minutes segment here
The scientific show gets a viewership of 20-25% of Quebec's population, so hopefully this kind of report will get schools to consider using video games in their classrooms or as homework.

Speaking at MATI on December 1st

I'll be giving a presentation at the MATI labs on December 1st, at 12. It will mostly be about the research results, but I'll include a fairly detailed rant on the current state of educational video games.

EDIT: the presentation can be seen here (french only)

Physica in the press

UQAM and CREO did a press conference on Physica, the virtual world island for which the main game is Mecanika. Some articles followed. I wasn't expecting the metro journal to pick up on this!

We're about to launch the Physica Island, where Mecanika is hosted. The university PR machine just got started. Here's the brief article!

And we're live!

The main game I've been working on in the last 6 months is officially out. It looks like we've got some pretty good comments so far.

Games for Change 2011 conference

Here's a video of the conference I gave in June at G4C 2011 on Mecanika. You can see I was pretty stressed out (I estimated 200 people in the crowd), so pardon the mumbled words!

Mecanika available in English

I just realized I never posted the link to the english version:

The guidebooks and english videos will be available by the end of summer 2011.
