If Serious Games were to take the form of an anthropomorphic animal from an 80s before-church-on-Sunday cartoon, they would be Willy Fogg from Around the World with Willy Fogg. Before I sat down, cross legged, uncomfortably close to the electric heater, with the bowl of Weetabix Mum had conjured, I would press the sticky button for Fogg and contemplate his mission – to complete a full circumnavigation of the world in 80 days, with recourse only to Victorian-era technology, while a misguided policeman/bear blundered after him. Serious Games‘ mission is almost identical.
My gosh, we’ve spoken to a lot of people willing to speak to us as of late. Today, I think we’ve duly outdone ourselves, as we chitchat with a man in possession of the most wondrous willingness of all. This man is Mikkel Overby, Commercial Director of Serious Games – the people who made Global Conflicts: Palestine and GC: Latin America.
