A mate of mine (who works for a cracking good Catholic NGO managing development projects in Latin America and America) introduced me to a fantastic concept…
The front page of the site says…ImpactGames is a world renowned pioneer in creating compelling interactive experiences around current events. Our aim is to partner with and enable organizations to change the way people consume information and understand the world around them.
How cool is that. People can ‘Play the News’ or ‘Peacemakers’, like video games, where you work in real life, current event scenarios, making decisions for the major players, and see what course of history prevails. I think you can even get points if you predict the correct outcome…!
It definitely throws a new light on the way in which we interact with history in reality. If we could predict it like a game, could that ever actually affect it’s course? Hmm
