@ThoseMetaMakers are a collective of scientists, artists and game designers forming part of The MetaMakers Institute at Falmouth University. They investigate ways in which Computational Creativity prototypes – soft- ware which is itself creative – can enhance our lives, drive cultural discourse and challenge assumptions. Ongoing public-facing projects include The Painting Fool, software to be taken seriously as a creative artist in its own right one day; The What-if Machine, which has produced fictional ideas for a musical theatre production; ANGELINA, an automated game designer which has had real impact in gaming cultures; and the latest addition: Gamika Technologies, which enable people to co-create novel and engaging games directly on their mobile phone.
