Gameful - A Secret HQ for Worldchanging Game Developers. Avant Game: GAMEFUL: a secret HQ for worldchanging game developers. As a planet, we spend 3 billion hours a week playing computer and videogames.
That’s a LOT of time -- enough to change our lives, and probably save the world (the real world) while we’re at it. That's why we want to create a secret HQ for people who are making games that are making us: - happier - smarter - stronger - healthier - more collaborative - more creative - better connected to our friends and family - and better at WHATEVER we love to do when we’re not playing games Here are some games that are already doing just that: EVOKE, Fold It! What all of these projects have in common: they’re dedicated to making some kind of a real positive impact on gamers’ lives and the world around them. In February, I gave a TED Talk that explains exactly how games can make a better world. I want to put all these people in touch with each other, so we can all make and play more good games together.

Five years ago, the relationship between the videogame world and major studios was pretty straightforward.
Hollywood made movies — and game companies licensed those films to create games. The “Tomb Raider” and “Resident Evil” games reversed that order, as games were transformed into film franchises. But no matter which came first, gamemakers were generally in the less powerful position. That’s quickly changing as entertainment tastes evolve — and game companies are sending the word to studios that it’s time to rethink the relationship. Some studios have begun to respond, creating franchises directly for the gaming world and adding plans for gaming labs to their operations. “Licensing content is dead,” Take-Two Interactive Software CEO Ben Feder proclaimed at Digital Hollywood, a recent industry conference.
