Earth Games on Tap 2018: Surviving Climate Change

  • Pacific Science Center 200 2nd Avenue North Seattle, WA, 98109 United States (map)

200 Second Ave. North
Seattle, WA

Video games are now one of the most popular genres in the history of humanity. Researchers, educators, game creators & change-makers are invited to ask: How could games help change the world for the better?

Join us for a fun and inspiring evening salon bringing together a cross-section of thinkers and creators to meet and mingle over locally-sourced food and beverages, and catalyze games that are good for people and the planet. This year we're focusing on the theme of "surviving climate change": how might games and players respond to the new reality of rising temperatures and all its social, biological, and geophysical consequences? Hear talks from award-winning game designer Tracy Fullerton and Grist writer Eric Holthaus, and try your hand at a fresh batch of games created by the Games for Our Future Game Jam, UW EarthGames Studio, and professional studios. See you there!
