Games for Change Festival 2012

I’m registered for the 9th Annual Games for Change Festival in NYC from June 18th to 20th.  I attended last year as well, and it was my favorite conference-type event of the year.

I love to see concrete examples of what works, and one of the things that this event does particularly well is offer sessions that focus on actual games and their development process, in addition to more general theory.

You can access recordings of sessions from last year online.  Some of my favorites were Jesse Schell’s keynote, Make Games. Not War and Filament Game’s session with iCivics.

The speaker line-up for this year’s festival looks fantastic – Jane McGonigal, Ian Bogost, and James Paul Gee, among others!  Registration is open at http://www.gamesforchange.org/festival2012/.
