I’ve started a new virtual reality / massive-multiplayer online mobile (phone or tablet) game. ARK is a role playing experience-learning basic life skills in a wild world where dinosoise wonder.

Why reality is broken:, quotes from Jane McGonigal
“I had to make it up as I went along, bringing together different findings from psychology, cognitive science, sociology, economics, political science, and performance theory in order to try to figure out exactly what makes a good game work.”

“We need to play games that stretch our collective commitment months, years or even decades ahead. We need to start playing with the future.”
“Collaboration isn’t just about achieving a goal or joining forces; it’s about creating something together that would be impossible to create alone.”
