Let’s play

Another experiment in communicating across languages – this time for a group of students Ana, Yomoh and I have been working with for a few weeks.

My Japanese is far from perfect, but they all seemed to understand what I was trying to say, so that’s ok!

An elephant

We’ve been thinking about different ways to communicate the basics of Emergent Game to different audiences.

During the course of this a new and as yet un-named avatar was created.

Not yet having an official name or Ludens (player/owner) doesn’t seem to have slowed the elephant down at all. He or she seems to have been very busy trying to track down avatars from the previous game.

The elephant has also been learning a few bartering skills and satisfying what looks like a strong desire to fly.

We’re not sure where the elephant is now, what the elephant is doing or who the elephant is doing it with, but should you happen to come across the elephant, please stop and say hello.
