                  Final presentations and judging for games created at the Jean Claude Van Jam http://jeanclaudevanjam.com August 19, 2012 @ Eyebeam Art & Technology Center Jean-Claude Van Damme has a rich film history which has influenced the culture of digital games. We can't ignore the impact of his first film, Bloodsport, on our favorite fighting games, such as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Van Damme even play Colonel Guile in the Street Fighter movie. His role in Lionheart as a courageous young fighter defending his brother's honor inspired the physical indie game hit "Hit Me!". With the release of the Expendables 2 on August 17th, we are holding Jean Claude Van Jam to deepen his filmography's expansive impact on games. Organized by Babycastles and the Eyebeam Game Research Group Ida Benedetto, Kaho Abe, Ben Johnson, Matt Parker and Ramsey Nasser Judges Kaho Abe, Greg Trefry, Keita Takahashi, Eric Zimmerman

                      On June 18th 2012 the Babycastles Cyborg Arcade Workshop took place at WORM Rotterdam. Together with Kunal Gupta (Babycastles) and Thu Tran (Food Party / Girl Talk) participants gave birth to a litter of cyborg arcade cabinets. We combined independent games from local Dutch game developers, large stuffed animals, chef knives, colorful duct tape, assorted blinking electronics, and the virus-writing windows scripting software”AutoHotkey”, and emerged with a new independent video games arcade in Rotterdam. The first arcade cabinets feature the games Karoshi by Jesse Veenbrux and Seven Dimensions by Marries van de Hoef. The Cyborg Arcade Cabinets are on show and playable during select events at WORM, with more games added every time. So check www.worm.org for more indie game dates in Rotterdam….
