Video games for change

This page in:

The Games for Change Annual Conference wrapped up today in NYC. The conference featured a discussion of the very popular and much talked about UNWFP Food Force game. (You should download and try it, see press coverage).

This issue of using games to improve development results is slowly gaining momentum, and it will be interesting to see where things go. For example, one of the debates is whether these games should be targeted at increasing awareness in the developed world or instead as teaching tools in less developed countries. Also, might a creative board game not be even more effective - do we need the 2.0 approach? For more, see Net Aid or Social Impact Games. (via Terra Nova)
