Ben Symon covered the “Serious Games” stream at the Australasian Simulation Congress in Sydney. Serious Games “…are those designed for a primary purpose other than pure entertainment”.
The ASC included the Serious Games Showcase & Challenge – Australasia (SGSCA), with a number of outstanding entrants.
Dale Linegar convened the Games section of the ASC. He spoke to Ben about the concept and the competition, including a description of the winner - Opaque Space’s Earthlight – a VR experience of being on the international space station.
