Ranulf head of Manila chapter of International Game Designers Association; Eric head of acads


Ranulf Goss, a support specialist from the Philippine office of
anti-virus firm Trend Micro, was named the new chairman of the Manila
chapter of the International Game Development Association (IGDA).

Among the first to be named are World Cybergames Philippines
coordinator Tjader Regis to head of the IGDA Events Group; Spoon
Interactive’s Willy Tang to head the Interactive Group; Gabby Dizon
and Luna Cruz, both of whom had worked with Anino Entertainment to
head the Arts and Design Group; and Ateneo de Manila University
professor Eric Vidal to head the Academic Group.

I think we’ll see great things from this group. =)

Tons of fun

Clair Ching‘s birthday party was tons of fun.
The scavenger hunt in UP was more of a leisurely stroll around famous
UP landmarks, and we enjoyed a great picnic on the grass after all our

I’m assmilating JM into our collective. ;) He’s a good fit. He’s
interested in kinesthetic puzzles, chess, books, firespinning, and
writing. =)

Dominique has been absolutely wonderful. I’m torturing Marcelle by
being so obviously thrilled—but I can’t help it. He’s just
so… <smile>

I’m glad to be home.

Chat with Sean

I finally managed to have dinner with Sean earlier. It turns out he
wasn’t avoiding me (heaven forbid). He had just been just buried under
work, having recently had his workday extended by an hour or so.
Dinner out was a welcome break for him, and we spent a few hours
leisurely chatting over soup and pasta at Almon Marina. I showed him
my feeble attempts at sketching and he gave me a few tips on facial
expressions. We chatted about movies and retrogaming, too. (No, we
didn’t mention the weather at all.)

We headed over to Bizu for dessert, where we ran into Aaron—an old
college friend I hadn’t seen in ages. It was a lot of fun chatting
with Aaron, and it looks like business is treating him very well
despite the demanding schedule. He juggles and is looking forward to
our show. =) As for me—the low-sugar chocolates and the positively
decadent chocolate souffle sent me into seventh heaven. I can’t
recommend that place enough.

The evening was great fun, and I look forward to meeting Sean and our
other friends soon. It’s funny… I really _do_ think meeting some
people would be more interesting than watching TV—or maybe even
working with the computer. Oooh, my hidden extrovert is showing… ;)

Chat with Ranulf

I had a nice long chat with Ranulf Goss about
life, the universe, and everything. I think it’s absolutely wonderful
that he wants to inspire people to go into independent game
development here in the Philippines, and I wish him lots of luck. I’m
looking forward to our Subic trip this weekend, too! =)
