LocationSuperior Room
DescriptionThis presentation outlines observations made about the ways in which the game industry’s practices and perspective can inform other industries. It is provided less as a how-to, and more as a conceptual framing that identifies positive, late emerging characteristics that can be applied to wider contexts. The observations provided in this presentation are based on more than 15 months of work funded by our $350,000 USD research generous supported by John S and James L. Knight Foundation. Our initial goal was to understand the challenges facing the news industry and apply game design as address. Our team of 12 scholars and media professionals developed 3 key framings and 4 game case studies, that we will present in this session.
