links for 25 August 2008 – What games can learn from social software

  • There’s a strange piece of slow glass between the web industry and the games industry. It’s strange because whilst stuff passes through it in both directions, it seems to move faster towards the web, and slower towards games. In the past 2-3 years, there’s been a lot of talk in web software about making applications more playful and gamelike. Now that people have done that – and succeeded – I guess it’s an appropriate time to return the favour.

    Not sure why but all of your links (for this post and your last post) appear to be broken. For me they show up as:

    Adam – thanks for letting me know – there seems to be an issue with the delicious updater… I’ll go take a look at that and see if I can fix it. In the meanwhile, I’ve fixed up those links. Thanks again for the heads up.
