My name is Gemma Thomson, and I’m a British game designer living and working in Stockholm. I play, draw and explore, and I strive to create engaging interactive experiences.

This is a free-form space where I post about my experiences and reblog things which catch my eye or make me think.

I'm Also:
... an urban explorer (of sorts), and a chronicler of Maps in Games.

There are wheels in Space Engineers' inventory, so I thought I'd try making a vehicle. Once I added a mass generator, it behaved according in accordance with gravity and actually managed to drive down the road I'd built!

That is, until I hit an area without gravity generators. This bizarre tractor-cum-lorry cab ended up orbiting my space station. It’s okay, though - I managed to stop it by embedding it in an asteroid.

'Yep. I am silenced by my own agreement with David here.

I’m annoyed by the comments which describe this as “rambling” - and also amused on some level, given what David’s doing in the video. I do believe he makes a strong argument here, and makes it well. Not everything has to be delivered as an infographic these days. Just allow part of an ongoing debate to wash over you.

Oh yes, and - I thought I recognised Victoria Tower in there. Huzzah once more for the Calderdale countryside!’

'We took a wander around Shoreditch yesterday, and I was highly amused by “Swedish Hasbeens”. Bizarre name for what appears to be a lingerie shop.

On a side note: having every shop on this block represented with a hashtag? That’s Shoreditch being Shoreditch to the point of collapsing in on itself.’

'How not to reassure me that this BIOS flash is a good idea. Nice one, Insyde.
Bizarrely, running this did cause my laptop to bluescreen - I had to pop the battery off just to have it shut down - but my mission seemed to be accomplished. At long last, my laptop began accepting the Windows 7 installation disc and so it looks like I’ll be able to upgrade after all.’
