Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Challenges to tackle:
  • Slavery, human trafficking, and labor conditions; the future of work
  • Political repression; fighting for freedoms and political power
  • Climate change
Where to focus:
  • China
  • The Middle East
Who to encourage to play:
  • Students
  • Politicians
How to change the game:
  • Less ripping off Heroes. That show isn't even well-written to begin with.
  • Less rather arbitrary seeming point-systems (more less-arbitrary point systems?), more recognition of accomplishments.
  • Less typing, more doing things in the real world. Recognize those who take initiative, facilitate for those who just want to contribute a bit of time.
  • Did Evoke really have us feeling that we were on the edge of an Epic Win (in McGonigal's terms)? Did this game give reality more desirable properties?
Why would I come back:
  • As before, to see what happens.

Thanks for your suggestions Samuel. I particularly like the idea of trying to get politicians to play the next season of Evoke!

Hehe, imagine candidates in an election being questioned about their Evoke scores. In order to impress the voters they would have to go out and persuade all their friends and supporters to participate. Evokations would become manifestos for "what I will do if you vote for me"

Excellent stuff.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
