Magical Gaming Anthem

Kam Raslan | Saqina Latif | Eddin Khoo

Magical Gaming Anthem

In this episode of A Bit Of Culture, Eddin Khoo returns to our panel of culture vultures. We also welcome Saqina Latif, Managing Director of indie video games outfit Persona Theory and our three speakers discuss video games (surprise, surprise); magic; and the national anthem. Kam starts off getting his thoughts tangled between wizardry, sorcery and magic but manages to somehow relate his understanding of the mythical realm to the Malay psyche. Debutant Saqina let us in on her thoughts on the future of video games - narrative based gaming, allowing the player to choose their own adventure. And to top if off, Eddin proposes his views on the Negaraku; what our language means to us, the spirit of the anthem and the liberties of singing it in another language.
