The Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab was a collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the government of Singapore created to explore new directions for the development of games as a medium. In partnership with MIT’s Center for Civic Media and the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute, we worked with a group of GAMBIT students to design and develop a community wireless educational game prototype called Link Up. Through cooperative role playing, this game teaches participants how to organize their community to engineer and deploy a wireless network. This project will inform a forthcoming video game.
