Runaway Hit: Not Such a Bad Idea After All?

in

 

I read last night on Kotaku that a Norfolk University professor wants to use a video game to build awareness about the Underground Railroad. Longtime Crispy readers will know that the subject matter holds special meaning for me, too.  I wish Prof. Newby-Alexander and her team the best. But, the thing I most worry about with regard to the game to come is that it'll be too educational. Y'know, like taking your medicine? Hopefully, it'll be as fun to play as it will be enlightening. But, since development isn't necessarily happening with commercial considerations in mind, I'd just want it to be its own unique thing.
