Alex Mayhew is an artist. It is not often one gets to say this about somebody who works in interactive media. But he is one of those very few whom we can call an artist without ifs or buts. As such, the conceptual limitations of game design don’t mean much to him. He designs straight for the core of the matter: interactivity and you, the user. This doesn’t stop him from going on about fishing on the Wii or playing Loco Roco, though.
Alex is probably best known for the fabled Ceremony of Innocence CD-Rom, an interactive adaptation of Nick Bantock’s Griffin & Sabine saga, published by Peter Gabriel’s Real World in the nineties. But he hasn’t rested a single day since and never gave up on his dreams, hopes and desires. I have a feeling we’re in for quite a treat, soon!
