Tiny Games Kickstarter

There is a current Kickstarter project (running through April 13) that I feel is very important.   I decided to make a short video about it to help raise awareness of the project.

The project is called Tiny Games, and it is out of a studio in the UK called Hide & Seek. They are developing an app/PDF with hundreds of small games that you play in the physical world with other people.

This app/PDF is all about enabling you to play with the people around you.  I made a video in support of this campaign.  It’s not a paid video, nor did they even ask for this.  (they don’t even know I’m doing it!)  I just feel this is very important, so I want to help get the word out.

You can see my video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vapE5W2QsI

New Blog section on classes

There's a new section in the Becuase Play Matters blog - the Syracuse University Game Related Classes.  The idea is that we are gathering all of the courses across campus that are related to games and putting them into one place.
