200 Second Ave. North
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!
