What's your involvement with educational games or software?

I am developing a tower defense game that produces a creative outcome: making music. I am investigating weather music can be used as a learning tool to form good strategies. If the player makes good music they will find that their strategy has improved, if their strategy is bad their music will sound bad. I like investigating how the mind can identify patterns within a system and use it to accomplish a goal.

What do you hope to get from this meetup group?

Sharing & gaining knowledge of how games are being created for different social applications and what problems they can solve. My favorite example of this is a game called 'Elude' http://vimeo.com/47828131#

Do you have a product, website or blog you'd like to share?

Introduction

Hi i'm Alex. I am interested in what makes a game great and why people play them. I love learning about: mechanics, dynamics, incentive, motivation, engagement, goals, & what kind of experience you want the player to feel.

What Alex is saying about this Meetup Group

Its super-fantastic, like all the Marvel & DC Super heroes combined!
