Checking for AUTOSAVE.

Ah, the 20th of October 2016, simpler times. I attended the 4th Games are for Everyone event at the Caves in Edinburgh. A mixture of art gallery, videogame arcade and club night, the labyrinthine venue was transformed into an interactive wonderland including real life haunted houses, yoga ball controllers, awkward arcades, competitive hugging and a Moby Dick game you control with a giant piece of drift wood.

I spoke to the organisers of the event and many of the developers who had created the incredible work on display.

"Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, call me Ishmael."
