Excited..?! Excited doen’t come close!!
I was on my way into Dundee on the train this morning when I spotted a Tweet:
@DareToBeDigital Excited for the @jesseschell talk at the Dare Jam at Dare ProtoPlay! Did you get your ticket? http://www.dareprotoplay.com #Dare2013
Excited doesn’t cover it – Jesse Schell is the chap I watched endlessly while completing my Masters project and wrote about at length on my Masters blog, Mysteryboxes and since, here on “Playful…“!
Disclaimer: If you are in no way interested in games, their value in play and education and plain ‘what-the-heck’ fun, then by-al-means leave now. This is kind of a geek-fest!
So, if you’re unaware of his work but into your games then read the article above, read the stuff I’m about to post below and then go get your tickets for tomorrow morning at Dare
! I don’t know what he has planned for you but I’m sure you’ll have a ball!
Incidentally, I dropped into the Dare tent today, in Dundee’s City Square. I’m going to write a little later on about a handful of games that I played; genuinely great games that, given the time to polish them up, will be on your mobiles and tablets in no time!
So, here’s a digest (Jesse in a nut-Schell, if you will) of posts on MysteryBoxes that relate to Jesse Schell
– they include a couple of YouTube
videos on his Transformational Games
theories and The Gamepocalypse
talk itself. It’s long, but soooo worth it!
Enjoy! And let me know how you get on!!
