Bad Game Arcade

Are educational games bad?

Educational games are made with different goals than most commercial titles. How does this help and hinder these games and the design processes behind them? The Bad Game Arcade investigates these and other question with interviews, roundtable discussions, panels, and games made for learning. Many, many games made for learning. Educational games are being made by non-profits, universities, libraries, and game companies. It’s time for them to be talking and showing their work to each other–and us. Come check out presentations and play some games in 4th Space from January 23-27! For details about who’s talking, what you’ll be playing, and other programming, please visit the event’s web site.

The Bad Game Arcade is organized by former teacher and Concordia PhD candidate Scott DeJong, with support from the Concordia Public Scholars Program and the Technoculture, Art, and Games Research Centre.
