Symposium: Spelunky, 6 March 2014

spelunkyProcedural generation scares me, and fascinates me. It’s as if you told a bard to sing a song from the Iliadic tradition, but then, as he sang, you kept yelling at him “But what happened to Hector then?” or “Where was Apollo?” and he had to change his song on the fly.

Actually, I bet there were bards who would have liked that, just as there are players who like Spelunky. Let’s talk.

So join us if that sounds interesting to you; no need to have any exposure to Spelunky. We’ll talk on Thursday, March 6th at 9:30 pm EST / 6:30 pm PST; voice chat over Skype, leave a comment if you need contact info.
