Want to change the world? Play Evoke

Posted on the March 4th, 2010

Jane McGonigal (PhD, UC, Berkeley) believes that we can best change what’s broken in the world by playing games.

In a Q&A interview with WIRED last month, McGonigal explains her thinking. She also talks about her new game EVOKE — launched yesterday — that puts her saving-the-world premise into action (“TED 2010: Reality Is Broken. Game Designers Must Fix It” Feb 11, 2010).

Video of how-to play the game, below. McGonigal’s personal website is here.
