Just a quick update for friends, colleagues & general contacts….
As of 1st April I have joined the social gaming arena by co-founding Soshi Games – www.soshigames.com – a game developer that creates social games with a social purpose. The approach we are taking is significantly different to the ‘serious games’ sector – we’re 95% fun and only 5% ‘serious with no learning content, assessment or curricula etc featuring.
Soshi Games will create games in Facebook (and eventually on other social networks) that have a social issue or cause as their theme. Our goals are simply to:
 raise awareness of said issue for the charities/NGOs, private companies and social enterprises that partner with us
 promote a call to action e.g. to help spread a message, to volunteer or to become a member/supporter
 to bring about a new source of unrestricted funding income for the partners involved through a simple revenue share mechanic.
We’re looking out for people and organisatiosn that can work with us for mutual benefit so if that is you then please visit our web site and drop us a line to say hi.
I’m attending Inside Social Apps 2010 — http://insidesocialapps.eventbrite.com
I’ll be in San Francisco from 18th to 22nd April and I am looking to hook up with people interested in social gaming with social themes and social outcomes.
