ARG Designer Interview – Jane McGonigal

Jane McGonigal has been involved in just about all of the major net-based ARGs of the past few years, including I Love Bees, Last Call Poker and Cruel 2 B Kind.  She also turns out to be one of the main forces behind the latest ARG, The Lost Ring.

This is a little bit dated but since my fascination with ARGs is new this interview from CNet was to me.  Whole bunch of good insights.  Here’s a tidbit:

“I create games to change people’s everyday lives; games that let people use everyday technologies and spaces differently–more playfully, more socially, more superheroically. The other part of what I do is study games to see what impact they have on people’s identity, habits and quality of life.”
