On the 18th of September, we showed SHI•RO at Talk & Play. This was special to us, because we just moved to Berlin and saw the event as a chance to meet fellow game developers and interested players. It’s been a great evening!

We’re so thrilled to share the news with you that SHI•RO is featured on the Apple App Store this week! This is a wonderful reward after the stressful last weeks, and we’re very happy about the mainly positive feedback we’ve gotten from our players. See it on the Apple App Store and tell us what you think :).

In September, we were part of three exhibitions. In Kassel, we exhibited a new work called Human Interface Hotline in the group show AKTION at Südflügel. AKTION took place from August 17th to September 9th.
Our Augmented Reality installation Transgressive Visions was part of KHK’s exchange exhibition in China, Hangzhou until the 22nd of September. It was too expensive for us to go there, but we hope we can visit someday.
On the weekend from the 21st to 23rd of September, we went to a small political festival by the local Poliklinik in Hamburg Veddel and did Augmented Reality walks. Hiding sensor packs in the quartier, our collective urban AR lab (Jasper Meiners, Isabel Paehr, Jörn Röder) made otherwise invisible phenomena like carbon dioxide visible in AR. The walks are based on an urban performance we did in Leipzig and you can read more about the ideas behind the project in our documentation.

After SHI•RO’s release, we headed to Helsinki to exhibit the game at Pocket Gamer Connects. The event took place from the 11th to the 12th of September and we had a table next to lovely other developers. PGC was less ‘indie’ than expected, but we got a deeper insight into the mobile games industry and into game development in Finland.
