Zines were not the only works that exhibitors had on display. A special section of the Majestic was dedicated to independent video game creators who brought monitors and tablets for attendees to engage with. One such game was reVAMP created by Ashley Zeldin and John Nesky, directors of grassroots gaming company Adorkable Games. Zeldin, who graduated from USC in 2008, conceived the game at this year’s Global Game Jam, a game-creation convention. The game follows the Jam’s chosen theme of “ritual”: it prompts the player to perform the ritual of applying makeup in the morning– except on the absent reflection of a vampire — only to see the botched results afterward.
