Three prototypes for City Games
For the first time in history, an international conference that was exclusively dedicated to city games took place on Friday, 21st of April at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam. A conference with a special touch of Eindhoven. Speakers and visitors from all over the world took the visitors into the possibilities of serious games for cities. For example the Italian Paolo Pedercini, known for the game Nova Alea, told about the powers that shape cities and the American Eric Gordon, from Engagement Lab in Boston, took us into games with social objectives. Besides the impressive international presentations, one of the three prototypes was also presented for a city game that is currently being developed by the DATAstudio to be played in Woensel-North – Eindhoven.
