Living Game Worlds III: Playing with Reality (Georgia Tech, March 2007)

Living Game Worlds III brought together international scholars, activists and game developers for a day-long discussion on nonfiction and documentary games. Variously referred as “serious games,” “games for change,” “persuasive games,” “newsgaming,” and sometimes educational games, participants explored special challenges and opportunities presented by games that tackle real world topics. Keynote speakers were Katie Salen and Tracy Fullerton. We also had a special panel on the controversy surrounding Super Columbine Massacre featuring Tracy, Ian Bogost and Sam Roberts, who produced the Slamdance Guerrilla Game Festival that year.
