'Under the Mask: Perspectives on the Gamer' not only offers academic insights into the gamer, it also provides a unique opportunity to play, watch and make games amongst fellow gamers.
In 2008, the organizers of the conference were pleased to welcome Samantha, bazza, Zaccubus and RattlesnK from the professional gamer clan Team Dignitas to the conference. There were also challenge events and an opportunity to play yourself with wonderful prizes provided by the nice people at GAME.
There were other game opportunities during the day. There was a Game Art exhibition and game-making workshops in the Mission Maker and Unity development environments. There were also demonstrations of the motion-capture system in use at the University of Bedfordshire.
