Exceptional games like SimCity, The Sims and Spore have set the standard for blending real life with games. They've managed to simplify super complicated concepts (like urban planning) while maintaining the dynamism and interrelations that help educate and entertain hundreds of millions of people worldwide. What lessons can we take from these games -- and decades of experience designing for fun -- to create engagement for large audiences with complex models and issues? How can we make simple everyday interactions more compelling and use them as teachable moments to energize society? Can everything really be fun -- and what are the secrets for balancing detail and simplicity? Join game design legend Will Wright as he re-imagines how the world becomes a more fun and engaging place, sharing his vision for the future and powerful design insight.
