Hello Gameful Peeps!
I'm looking for feedback/advice on my latest project.
I'm hosting a summit that's bringing together volunteers from the nonprofit and game communities to collaborate for a day toward designing a game that will address an issue one of the nonprofits facing. Stage two will be getting funding, building a small team, and turning the design into a real game.
It's going well so far. I have participants from PATH and Seattle Children's on the nonprof side, and from across the game industry on the design side. I've go the venue, food, and other basic logistics taken care of. And I'm currently working on the structure for the day.
Any experience that you want to share on the following topics would be appreciated:
- Process for designing games with a group of people in a short period of time.
- Things to think about when working with nonprofits (my background is for profit).
- Getting funding for nonprofit games (crowdsourcing, grants, investors, etc.)
Thanks for your help!
