Game designers need to use psychological tricks.

They need to understand our and their own psychological keys, locks and angles.

People love to be loved.

Receiving compliments stimulates people.

oh, we use all kinds of psychology and sociology in the design of games.

i would say that the designers of Urgent Evoke forgot how to make an Alternate Reality Game, which this is supposed to be. compare Urgent Evoke to ilovebees.com (Jane's breakthrough work in 42 Entertainment) and you will see the differences.

a) an ARG is an immersive alternate environment. where are the prop websites? the hidden messages?
b) an ARG is interactive. players should be communicating with characters in the story.

I think Evoke is not an ARG but rather what Jane McGonigal calls a "Future Game" :)

Anyone interested in gaming and how it can be useful to our generation and beyond should read "Everything bad is good for you" by Steven Johnson. It gives some interesting ideas about how video games help cognitive abilities by allowing players to solve problems continually while playing games. So it's not just the reflexes and such that are the main benefits of games, but rather the cooperation, and problems solving that it invokes. Jane talks about it a bit, but the book goes into how there is cultural evidence of this already. He also talks about television programming....Great, easy read.

Future of Currency

The experiment that I believe will have the greatest impact on the future is the concept of Micro-Loans. The largest purveyor of these loans is Kiva.org. The idea behind micro-loans is small loans, even as small as $25 to help fledgling businesses that can't get loans anywhere else either because of their location, business, the amount they want to borrow, or a host of other reasons. All businesses need loans for various reasons. Some just to buy more products to sell. This allows many…See More
