First of all, kudos to a job well done to the World Bank Institute, the game developers/writers/administrators, and everyone else involved in putting together Evoke and Season 1. I don't know if that can be said enough. Kudos as well to the thousands of people that have made Evoke Evoke.
Grounded in such a great beginning, below are ideas for the future, the first of which is what I would be most excited about:
HOW would you change the game for Season 2?
a) Have the episodes' stories originally be in a language native to the location in which the episode is taking place. And in order to have the story translated into another language, an agent must first research and answer a question (or more) about the location and its culture and language(s). This would not only serve as a reminder that there is a world out there beyond the scope of the English language, but it would also promote the learning of other languages in the process.
b) Have the heroes for each episode's story be from the location featured. This would shift the focus from aid being initiated from the outside to aid and initiatives instead starting from within, implicating that such communities are not necessarily helpless themselves. This would make sense from the game's perspective of moving into Season 2 because there are now more agents than just the original few Evoke started out as.
WHERE in the world should the network try to build up new EVOKE communities?
a) Any location where English is either not spoken or is not the native language.
WHAT new tools would you want as an EVOKE agent?
a) Ability to translate messages in other languages, meaning everyone can write and share in their native language yet still be able to communicate with one another. Just don't ask me how to do this :)
WHY would you come back for a second Season?
a) To continue to explore and integrate the challenges (and successes) we share in the world today.
b) To continue to have a community upon which to share ideas and learn from.
WHICH great challenges and social problems should the EVOKE Network tackle next?
Religious conflict and understanding
b) International conflict and the history among nations
c) The concept of "foreign aid" and the benefits of it, as well as possible mis-perceptions and/or misguided actions that can come as a result of it.
WHO would you encourage to play Season 2?
a) Anyone wanting to explore their passion in life and discover more of who they are and what they care about.
