Promotion for next month's conference comes with Vision Camera card

UK studio Rare is co-organising next month's Women in Games conference - but has used promotion of the event as a chance to let out a few details of its Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradisem, which is released next week.

Specifically, it has leaked out one of the collectable cards which can be scanned into the game using a 360 Vision Cam.

The conference itself, co-organised by Nicola Bhalerao a female games programmer on the new game, looks to promote the role women have to play in the games industry, and explore why girls can be turned off technology at a young age.

But Bhalerao has also treated fans while announcing her involvement in the conference - with, fittingly, a card of a female character from the game.

Prospective attendees of the event have just a week to sign up - registration closes on Friday, September 5th. It's being held at the University of Warwick from September 10th to 12th.
