Full Interview: Jesse Schell on Game Design


Recently, I spoke to Jesse Schell, he's a game designer and a professor at the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University. I wanted to talk to Jesse about the current state of gaming, and the possible future of games. He gave a very engaging, provocative talk recently, suggesting that we're starting to see the "game-ification" of everyday life, and that gaming will likely become the norm as a mode of advertising, or even to push forward public policy. I'd love it if you have a chance to listen to our conversation, and tell me what you think. We're hoping to include comments and reactions within the episode next week.
