How many points can you rack up… Brushing your teeth? Commuting to work? Reading books? Jesse Schell, CEO and Creative Director of Schell Games, imagines a future where all aspects of our daily lives are integrated with video games.


Games perpetually revolutionize computer use toward denser interaction with the human mind. To do that, they perpetually revolutionize themselves. Understanding the next frontiers of the genre is one way to understand where society is going.

In this talk Jesse Schell explores the social, cognitive, and technological trends in computer game design and use. This program was recorded in collaboration with the Long Now Foundation, on July 27, 2010.

Jesse Schell is the CEO of Schell Games, the author of the authoritative text, The Art of Game Design: A book of lenses, and a Professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon, specializing in Game Design. At Walt Disney, he was Creative Director of the Imagineering VR Studio.
