November 8th 2013 will be the 125th anniversary of the murder of Mary Jane Kelly by an unknown assailant known as 'Jack the Ripper'. This project uses original photography and 3D game elements to experiment with making a 'playable documentary'. Exploring notions of crime, news reporting and ethics, players will interact with characters, discover clues and piece together the story, drawing parallels between contemporary society and this infamous crime.
We're happy to say that Bristol is one of the 212+ sites from 46+ countries that are taking part in the Global Game Jam. If you're new to the term, 'Game Jam' is an informal development session where people get together and create a game from scratch around a theme. Auroch Digital is providing project support to the Bristol event. The event is going to be at the PM Studio on 27th till 29th January 2012. Places are limited and going fast, so if you are interested then please sign up asap! Hashtags for the event: #ggj12 for the global event, #ggj12bristol for Bristol.
