I’m taking this online course that explores gamification – the application of gaming principles (like experience points and awards) to non-game situations. Super nerdy, but super fun! (Who doesn’t like more xp?)

I think that there are a considerable number of theatre-folk who are gamifying their practice, perhaps without knowing that that’s what they’re doing. As far as I can see, one of the recurring themes in gamified theatre is immersion – you are the play.

A guy who used to be a teacher of mine at the University of Ottawa now has this company in Montreal called Herole, and they have a really great take on what immersion means on their website. It’s a cool company and a cool concept – check them out!
