Our first speaker: Sophie Sampson

Rat King Events, News, Speakers

We’ll soon be hosting our first event in London on March 3rd! So, the Game Rats are proud to announce our first (ever! *gasp*) speaker: Sophie Sampson.

Sophie makes games as one half of Matheson Marcault. She writes about history from a game design perspective and designs games using culture, history and play in physical spaces.

She’ll be posing the question: What was the first videogame? Was it Nimrod at the 1951 Festival of Britain? Was it Bertie the Brain, a very expensive way of playing tic tac toe on a mainframe? Or something else entirely?

Do you make games or work in the games industry – interested in attending? Spaces are limited but you can get your free ticket here.
