Hello,

My name is Dave and I'm very new to this site. I don't consider myself a game designer. I consider myself a theater artist, or maybe even a performance artist. I have been developing a performance that attempts to erase the line between performer and audience, to make the two entities become one. I realized a short time ago that what I am making is a game. I've created a game world that allows people to inhabit the world, to play in it for a period of time. The world revolves around an Eco-community, called Us. Players become members of the community and have an opportunity to level up by completing services. The game compels players to explore issues of sustainability in a fun, creative and personal way.

I'm here because when I read about games for change, or serious games, I get so inspired. Honestly, I'm not so into digital games. I'm not much of a video screen person. I've always been more interested in non-digital games, even as a kid (Us is a real world game, btw.)

Anyway, I thought I'd make a post because I felt like maybe there are some people in this community that might be interested in Us. We've been developing and beta testing for a little over a year now, and are going to go live in April. If anyone here is inclined, check out www.theusgame.com. I'd love to get a gamer's perspective on it.

Thanks so much!
Dave
