New word in the ICT Arena

I’ve enjoyed this for years but never new what it’s called ….

Machinima

This is where you take a computer game and make the characters act out a ’play’. I first came across this with Red Vs Blue where they used the game Halo and gave the computer generated figures voices and personalities by over dubbing. RvB is not really for young children but you can find some episodes here:

Red Vs Blue

Using this medium it would be easy to see how we could use games like Myst to have some real fun. If you’ve never seen Tim Rylands on the topic then drop by his website:
