Gameful Gaming Resources

So I've been considering how to encourage some gameful participation, and I decided a gaming resource list might be a good place to start.  It seems like a lot of people come here really encouraged by using games to create change, and maybe they have a great idea for a game they want to create, but they have no idea where to get started.  So for everyone that wants help let me start by saying, almost anything you want to do can be accomplished on your own.  I'm not saying you can't get…

Building a Home for a Community

Hey all - 

Looks like my old account got deleted!  Oops - but that's OK, it had been forever since I'd been on the site -- grad school and work and all that stuff just very little time for ancillary things.  

Anyway, for anyone who doesn't know, one of the most imaginative and fun MMOs out there, Glitch is closing it's doors because it wasn't making enough money.  While the community for the game is small, it is very…

looking for the perfect beat

Hey everybody-

This is Jason, an artist jumping into digital media. I've been really inspired by Jane McGonigal's writing, which led me to this site, which I am excited to explore!

I am in the process of heading back to school- gulp. It's a big step for me, which I hope is going to open a lot of doors. The program I am interested in is a new offering at OCAD University in Toronto, called Digital Futures. This is it…

New to This site: Not sure who is with me on these things

I just kind of joined this page on a whim well researching for a speech im doing for class on how video games positively affect the real world but this isn't something im doing just for a grade...video games have really inspired me my whole life and i always wanted to be part of that process, but i never had the patients to learn programing. What i have always wanted to do though is be behind those first few steps of creating a video game.  I am currently a student at the University of…

I played SuperBetter and was inspired...

There looms a huge dark cloud of impending crisis in medical education today.  I think the following spells out one of the main reasons why doctors get easily stressed out, leading to poor communication with patients.  Too much information not well taught!!  There is too much information without the organization it deserves.  So when there is too much written information about something good it becomes boring EVEN when the subject matter is immensely interesting and important to people's…
