A new association has launched for those involved in creating games for education and training.
The Serious Games Association will host conferences, support groups and manage a blog and media site for those who create games with a purpose beyond simple entertainment. This includes simulations, corporate games, educational games, and those designed with a social benefit in mind.
Examples include Aircraft Marshalling Virtual Trainer, RoboMath and Emergency Birth.
It will also run The Serious Play Conference, which will take place August 21 in Washington.
Membership is $35 and more details can be found at the official site.
