New York! New York! Speaking at Games for Change

May 22, 2013

Very, very excited to say that @DebbieCo and I from Auroch Digital are off to New York next month for Games for Change. We’ve been invited to take part in a panel with a fascinating bunch on people:

THE REJECTED: CENSORSHIP OF SOCIAL IMPACT GAMES
PARTICIPANTS: Ian Bogost, PHD, Alex Jansen, Clay Ewing, Tomas Rawlings
Games that tackle controversial issues have a giant chip on their shoulder: censorship. Whether a game is banned by a distributor or pulled by a sponsor, the effects can be chilling. This panel will discuss games that broached topics deemed unacceptable for consumption with a mixture of first hand accounts and perspectives on using games as means of persuasion.

I especially like the title ‘The Rejected‘ as it makes us all sound part of some cool western from the 1960s or a new-wave punk band.

But also – it’s NEW YORK! I’ve never been, but it’s one of those iconic places we know so well from our consumption of media…
