The Start Show – Benjamin Rivers interview
With the Hand Eye Society’s Arcadian Renaissance happening tonight as part of Nuit Blanche, we figured it would be appropriate to post this interview with The Start Show co-organizer Benjamin Rivers. When we first interviewed him, it was at Fan Expo as a comics creator. We actually had no idea about his involvement with Hand Eye at the time. Well, we know better now.
The Start Show, which I hope becomes an annual event at the very least, showcased a number of great indie titles, including N+, Dyad and Spooky Squids’s Cephalopods Co-op Cottage Defence, just to name a few. Benjamin took the time to talk to us about them, the question of video games as art came up, and me mentioned the very cool www.retrosabotage.com, as well a lot of talk about the Toronto gaming scene in general.
