Video Game in 10 Years

Posted by on March 27th, 2009

This is a presentation I gave at the GamesBeat09 conference hosted by VentureBeat. The topic is about the future of video games. Unfortunately, my presentation was interrupted. Therefore I recorded a version afterward to satisfy the people who are interested to hear the ending.

However, this is the first time I tried to add my narration to my slides. There were so many technical issues happened during the making of this video. So if you hear sound glitches (some are pretty long), please bear with me. In addition, this was suppose to be a 8 minutes talk. However, I spent 20 minutes trying to elaborate each slides to more details which made the talk too long to watch : {

Fan-Created Trailer for “Flower”

Posted by on March 12th, 2009

Cross posted on the PlayStation Blog

“Hi everyone, Randall Lowe here, associate producer on Flower.

I wanted to introduce you to a great trailer entitled “Remember” that was put together by The Duo Group, with the sound put together by Hybrid Two. Right after Flower came out last month, Kellee from thatgamecompany came to us and showed us this trailer, asking if we could distribute it on the blog and PSN. After seeing what an amazing job The Duo Group did putting the trailer together, our answer seemed pretty obvious.

The trailer captures so many feelings that the game conveys, it just seemed like a perfect fit. What’s even equally amazing is that all of this with nothing but idle screens, which is what are shown when you leave the game sitting for a short bit. After a little work on the back end, we were able to get the trailer ready and approved for distribution today via the PSN. So, without further adieu, please sit back, enjoy, and remember.”

Watch the trailer here.
