Gamemooc to Horizon Report to Empire and State Game!


Gamemooc has shared lots of great things for me to consider! One of the most recent is a business game called Empire and State. Other students of the MOOC may say, where did you see something about that? It was a link on page 23 of The NMC Horizon Report: 2013 Higher Education Edition under the section titled "University of Washington Business Simulations"

Why Empire and State? It's free, looks fun and is the first "political strategy MMO" I have ever seen that interests me.

This demonstrates another benefit about the Gamemooc.  Besides the connectivism atmosphere, the friendly people and the knowledge, there is an opportunity to explore all kinds of new things!

Update! I dug deeper and see the following in the game's FAQ: "Linux and Mac OS X support is to be determined" No Mac love. Well, perhaps I will try again another time.
