Gaming the Real World
Directed by Anders Eklund, 2016, Sweden, 73’
Can video games be harnessed to help residents, especially young people, take part in planning, and fixing their own cities? “Civic gamification” contributes so that city architecture and urban planning is democratized. The film features Lydia Winters at the game developer Mojang, the creators of Minecraft, Paradox Interactive and the game Cities: Skylines and José Sanches and his indie game Block’hood. How will our cities look in 20-100 years time?
