The Guardian Guide – 28 February 2004 Where most video game conferences assiduously filter out members of the public, keeping them away from anyone that matters, Nottingham Trent University’s annual Screenplay weekend seeks to involve players as well as coders, artists and industry figureheads. Features include Regain The Game, a competition to find the best new amateur game concept; The Old Skool, an arcade full of old faves from Pac – Man to Defender; My favourite Game, selected by celebrities including Lemmy; a performance of Reactor’s GHAOS ZX and a two – storey tall projected talking head. Expect free – thinking discussion, a lot of things to play on and a colossal dose of the surreal.
