Gamasutra: The Art & Business of Making Gamesspacer
Video: Bringing 'play' to the streets of the Maldives
October 9, 2013 | By Staff

"I think subconsciously we were part of this social and political change. "
At GDC Europe 2013, Copenhagen Game Collective co-founder Patrick Jarnfelt reflects on creating playful events in the public spaces of a socially and politically tense Male.

In this free GDC Vault session entitled 'Playmakers in the Maldives', he discusses the social and political climate the developers faced and the games designed for the project, including the latex waterproofing of PS Move controllers for Jelly Stomp and (local favorite) banana costume wearing for The Hunt for The Yellow Banana.

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent GDC events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers. Those who purchased All Access passes to events like GDC, GDC Europe, and GDC China already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscriptions via a GDC Vault inquiry form.
