There is a write-up on Edge of the recent ExPlay session that Auroch Digital’s Tomas Rawlings chaired:
It’s encouraging to hear from developers engaged with areas such as science and education who are so passionate about ‘traditional’ gaming values. The idea of closely aligning education with game goals – needing to know that copper conducts electricity in order to solve a puzzle, for example – is a simple, but powerful one.
Auroch Digital wants to say a huge thanks to the ExPlay people for making us feel so welcome and putting on such a great event!
The talk above happened the day before the games from the Wellcome Trust ExPlay games jam’s shortlisted game’s were showcased.
