It seems that nothing can stop the growth of games thatteach, train, inform, and promote social change. Join our panel of industryinsiders from Alelo, Disney Learning, Enspire Learning, and GameDesk as theydiscuss the current state of the serious games sector; a comparison of serious "sub-genres";approaching game design when it's bound by real-world rules; and ensuring the survivalof "fun" in serious games.
