For PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 62, game developer Mark Cooke took up quite the challenge: create 10 games in 10 hours. His presentation was then based on the results, taking us on a tour of each experiment, revealing exactly what an hour of development time will allow you to design. The video above is a screencast version of the presentation, and below you'll find a live recording -- the quality is not as good, but you get a better feel for the kind of reaction that each game got from the record crowd. And that PechaKucha Night rhythm iPhone game? We liked it so much that we're already planning to do a proper PKN-branded version with Mark.

If you've been feeling like you need to get a bit more excitement in your day, try following Niall Doherty and his "Random Acts of Courage." Posters We've got a few new posters on our Tumblr blog, including the ones for PKN Mendoza Vol. 4 (above), PKN London Vol. 6, and PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 1, which debuts tomorrow. Videos Instead of sharing photos today, and since there seems to be an absolute boom in these, today we share a few teaser videos that have been produced for PKNs -- we love them so much that we often play some at our PKNs here in Tokyo. Below, teaser videos for PKN Curitiba Vol. 2, PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 13, and PKN Lisbon Vol. 14. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J5alkNK6zI httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMu22YtbFiU Links"New voices seek to harmonize with Toledo arts community" [Toledo Free Press]Calendar Tonight (Monday, May 21) you have your choice of the very first PechaKucha Night in the city of Muscat, Oman, or another blockbuster PKN (Vol. 13) in Tel Aviv.

Anamorphic Lens Love, an Unusual Flat in Florence, and Ottawa Panoramic
Presentations What's an anamorphic lens? Find out in this presentation (from PKN Cork Vol. 1) by Mike Hannon, as he talks about his love of this photography accessory, leaving you with the following thought: How can something so geeky be so entertaining? In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Pisa Vol. 1), Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so we'll highlight (above) yesterday's PKN Kyoto Vol. 7 flyer -- the event takes place this coming Sunday (June 17). Photos Above, a first look -- and a panoramic one at that -- at the scene for last night's PKN Ottawa Vol. 5, about 30 minutes before the start. As PKN Ottawa organizer Remco Volmer tells us, "the speakers were great, the room was nearly at capacity, and the vibe was terrific." Calendar First up, here are tonight's (June 14) events: PKN Pittsfield Vol. 14, PKN Toronto Vol. 16, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, PKN Portsmouth Vol. 11, and PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 10. Tomorrow, you can look forward to the following four events: PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, PKN Des Moines Vol. 10, and PKN Paris Vol. 18.
