A year ago, San Francisco published a story on celebrity game designer Jane McGonigal and her website Gameful.org, which had just launched. The site is a place where designers, programmers, and gamers meet up to brainstorm and create what McGonigal calls “gameful” (otherwise known as “serious”) games that take aim at real-life challenges like peak oil and world hunger. Since we wrote about it, the site has gained more members—or “monsters,” as they’re called in Gameful land. Tonight, McGonigal is a City Arts and Lectures speaker at the Herbst Theatre. If you can’t snag one of the few remaining tickets, just tune in to KQED at 8 p.m. Per usual, an interesting local will be asking the questions; this time it’s Ryan Wyatt, the director of Planetarium and Science Visualization at the Academy of Sciences.
