Happy Friday, everybody! Here’s another episode of JB’s Workshop.
We fall down. We get up again.

Last weekend was the VRTO conference in Toronto, marking the first public showing of Manimal Sanctuary, a project designed by Jim Munroe which I’ve had the good fortune of helping to bring to life.
For the last half year or I’ve been secretly colluding with the folks at Postopian Games to help bring to life “Manimal Sanctuary”, an interactive story/post-apocalyptic lurking simulator for Google Cardboard.
We’ll be showing the game publicly for the first time at VRTO 2017 (Virtual & Augmented Reality World Conference & Expo 2017) this coming weekend. On Monday (June 22) I’ll be joining designer Jim Munroe on stage to talk about about the game and our experiences making it.

I get cynical in the woods in this episode, addressing the current state of AR.
At the Toronto Game Jam (http://www.tojam.com) where I make a game with Mr. Colin Sanders (game designer and coder), Karla Wong (game artist), and Kai Winter (audio artist).
As part of an effort to bring joy back to my creative life I’ve started a wee vlog about tech stuff, creative projects, and whatever other fun I feel like. Check it out!
