Gaming 'Round the World

There is travel writing, but is there such a thing as travel games? Jordan Magnuson wants to find out. Jordan is planning on traveling around the world and creating games based on his experiences. (He's also the original founder of TIGSource, so really, what more accolades does the guy need?)

One game that has already come out of his time overseas is called Freedom Bridge and is about his experience visiting the eponymous bridge that spans the DMZ between North and South Korea.

He's set up a site called GameTrekking to document his travels and the games. There's a ton of information about the project there, but if you want to skip straight to the donation, here's the Kickstarter page.

Jordan has put together an intro video that's embedded below. If you also this is an awesome idea, spread the word! I think it's a bloody brilliant endeavour and I'm very excited to see the games that come out of.
