Just a quick post to let you know I'm attending the Games for Change Festival in NYC today and tomorrow and will be writing about what I see and hear. I've met some fascinating people doing remarkable things, and I look forward to sharing their stories with you.
One thing is abundantly clear. Our definition of games, the purposes they serve and the audiences they reach are all quickly evolving. No one wants to replace Halo or Call of Duty, but plenty of other kinds of games are appearing on the horizon, and the folks at this festival are working hard to figure out how to make them compelling, challenging, fun, provocative, and a dozen other applicable adjectives I'm too tired to think of at the moment.
Watch this space and, as always, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Now I've got to caffeinate and head back for the afternoon sessions.
