BreakAway New Blog Fosters Serious Games Knowledge Sharing

Breaking new ground for Serious Gaming

BreakAway, Ltd launched yesterday their New Blog.

Their goal is to provide open, two-way communication, and as a result, foster a relationship between the gaming experts at BreakAway and a core group of people interested in new ways to use cutting-edge games and game technologies to improve the ways organizations operate.

With each post of this blog they intend to provide useful, how-to information as well as share opinions and knowledge about the Serious Games industry.

They plan to cover topics that will be of interest and value, culling ideas from a range of sources, such as surveys they conduct, e-mail and other direct communications they receive from readers, industry conferences, other media resources, BreakAway staff discussions, etc.

They believe they have the power to transform the way we think about game technology and hope the new blog will be the lead agent for that change.
