“Is creating something to kill everybody on the planet a compelling game concept, or is it too close to reality?” asks David Gagnon, during the early hours of a recent game-design workshop at UW-Madison's Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID). Gagnon directs the Field Day Lab and is an alumnus of the School of Education's Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Games, to Gagnon, are not just a matter of, well, fun and games. Instead, they are a teaching tool with advantages over textbooks and discussion, at least for some topics.
