A Video Game!

So we’re going to go through my visit to Sigiriya in some detail, as I’m working on a Sigiriya-related project right now, so this is also serving as my research notes.

What project, you ask? A video game! I’m partnering with Kel Bachus‘s Rad Magpie game company, to develop a Sri Lankan-themed video game. This weekend I’ll actually be flying out to Vermont for a retreat with Kel, the lead artist, Kat Weaver, and the game designers. We’ve been working on game possibilities for several months now, and by the end of the weekend, I’ll be able to tell you quite a bit more about the shape of the project. I am SO excited to be working with this great group. 

(We will likely need more artists to work on the project, and I would love to suggest Sri Lankan or SL diaspora artists; if that’s you or someone you know, please get in touch!)

I’ll also take this opportunity to give big thanks to Yudhanjaya WijeratneSuchetha Wijenayake, and Samanthi Hewakapuge, who have kindly agreed to serve as cultural consultants on the project.
