How is this video game different from others?
Gaming to solve scientific problems draws a diverse crowd says HealthMaker and computer scientist Seth Cooper. In this video, learn about how these games are different and who is playing them.
It's really a very diverse set of people who are coming together to play the game.
And I think that that's one of the things that's, you know, really helped to see the kinds of solutions that have come out of it.
We wanted to make a game that didn't have any violence, or explosions, or guns--
a lot of those sort of, like, negative things that people might think about when they think about games-- as a way to actually make the game more accessible
and, you know, playable by a diverse group of people than what you might traditionally associate
with gaming, people from actually all over the world, not just the United States but, like, the UK,
and Germany, Australia, and New Zealand, Canada, and all kinds of places, and from a very diverse backgrounds,
and students, and people working in technology, musicians,
and artists, and that kind of thing. So it's really a very diverse set of people who are coming together to play the game.
And I think that that's one of the things that's really helped to see the kinds of solutions that have come out of it.
Because we have a lot of different people with a lot of different ideas and ways of looking at problems coming together. [MUSIC PLAYING]
