Riptide Team Meeting May 1: Adam Jones
Every two weeks we have a company meeting to update the team on all things Riptide Games. At the end of each meeting we select one person to present something they’ve found interesting or worthwhile to share with the group.
This week’s presentation was from Adam Jones, our Jr Art Director. This is what he shared with the team, along with a short explanation:
Old Family Portraits Expose Superheroes' Roots
A mystery art studio located in Milan has created vintage portraits of the ancestors of our favourite super heros.
Tetris Can Prevent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
A research team from Oxford University claims that Tetris can prevent PTSD flashbacks.
Found results when letting soldiers play soon after their exposure to trauma.
It works by interfering with the brain's ability to form and retain the traumatic memories.
Tribute video to old school platformers:
This brought back traumatic memories of when I used to play Super Adventure Island for hours and never making it past the third level... I should have played more Tetris.
