An open space for global conversation
In today's Occupy Cafe call, my small group started taking about using games or even sports to bring people together about the issues. There are plenty of people in the video game industry that use games to teach or send a message. But there are games that are just fun that also install a sense of working together.
So I want to start a list of games that either involves teamwork, collaboration, and/or teaches about issues.
In a Wicked Age:
A group of players collaborate with each other to create a fantasy story.
The world's first massively collaborative disaster simulation
Games that focus on the environment:
Games that focus on the economics:
The Climate Business Game:
The Great Flu
A game about disease control
oh! I forgot to mention a book called, "Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World".
