This talk impressed me not only because its presented in very funny and direct way but also because he views gaming from a different perspective.

Creating Worlds

I wonder what influence the movie Minority Report had on the industry regarding interfaces, but this video one beats it all. Touchscreen is the latest craze of the industry, the iphone woke up the mobile industry and now computers move to touch as well. This one shows the future, watch this first before the second video, which shows the touch interface in the real world ... awesome stuff!

Lecturing and Teaching at Universities

As some of you know I am an active teacher at two universities. One course is Game Design at the Media Design Hochschule in Düsseldorf (also active in Munich and Berlin), the other one is the famous Filmacademie in Ludwigsburg (even earned OScars for their films).

At the first I am looking for an easy to use level design tool with a game attached already. They need to learn the tool pretty fast and be able to design a complete, playable level within 1-5 weeks. Any recomodations? This can be an online game, single player game (any genre) and needs to be freely available.

Please leave comments about recomodations.
