The Authoritarian Turn @ NYUAD, Sep 9

8 September 2014

The New York University Abu Dhabi Institute (NYUAD) will be hosting a discussion titled The Authoritarian Turn: On the State of the Egyptian Intelligentsia at their NYC location on September 9.

Bringing together a group of writers and scholars renowned on the subject, Bidoun and the legendary New Directions publishing house celebrate the launch of Sonallah Ibrahim‘s Stealth and take on the Egyptian intellectual in the wake of President Mohamed Morsi’s dramatic fall.

In particular, exploring the public intellectual’s support for military-backed and often extremely violent leadership, moderated by Bidoun editor Negar Azimi, authors including Khaled Fahmy, Mona El Ghobashy, and Robyn Creswell “reflect on a year in which moral compasses have been cast hopelessly askew”.

See the Bidoun event page for details. **

Monaco playthrough

23 January 2012

Good to know MIM continues its steady polishing and coding evolution towards a potential 2012 release. That maybe discussed another day, today we shall give room to Andy‘s latest demo he just uploaded to youtube last Wednesday.

The 6min video shows a  full level playthrough of the Monte Carlo Casino  Heist stage with 2 of the characters:  the Hacker and Pickpocket rushing through all 4 casino floors to get their trophy and scape through the roof…. so we all get an excellent idea of the playability, speed and complexity that awaits us. Imagine much more complex scenarios being played by 4 characters simultaneously… pure joy.
