Our friend and former coworker Alice just published her first iOS game Memory Dojo as part of Chin and Cheeks. The game has you guiding “Ninja” through memory lessons with his Sensei. The rounds start innocuously enough but increase in difficulty as you play, adding to the challenge and fun.
Check out gameplay screenshots below.

Recently I had the chance to enjoy the surprisingly powerful “The Walking Dead” video game from Telltale Games. The game spans over five episodes based on the acclaimed comic series. Despite the medium, the game was brimming with stark presentation and emotional appeal. In this post, I’d like to focus on the different modes of storytelling utilized by the game. Earlier, I looked at different types of interactive storytelling in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. Today, I’ll be looking at how this game combined both to make a moving experience rivaling that of film.

At E3, I was wowed by a demonstration of Microsoft’s SmartGlass. The application brought a second screen to the Xbox 360 experience, offering an alternative way to control the device through the use of a smartphone. About 5 months later, Smartglass has arrived. Earlier this week I had a chance to play around with it. How does it stack up to the demonstration I saw? Read on to find out.
In the Part 1 of this series, we reviewed some visions of the future from the past. Although some of these visions, especially that of Sir Arthur C. Clarke, included rather accurate predictions about the future, many of the predictions were either “laughably conservative” (as Clarke might put it) or overly optimistic and absurd from today’s point of view.
In this blog, we shall take a look at some more contemporary visions of the near future, including those of tech companies such as Microsoft and Google. We shall discuss some of the similarities and common themes as they relate to technology and user experiences that they all share.
