Story about our efforts to use video games to stop teen dating violence. The Moultrie Observer is a local newspaper in Moultrie, GA where Jen and I lived for 2 1/2 years.
MOULTRIE — If it were a television show, it might be called “From Tragedy to Video Games.”  Sounds a little strange at first, doesn’t it?

I hope that everybody's weather is as beautiful as it is in Atlanta and as it was while I was in Pittsburgh!

Here's a picture of the finish line for the marathon taken from my hotel while I was there. I really appreciate everybody's work on the Now I Get It! Jam - it was really a wonderful (and encouraging) experience!

I received a question about the contest and wanted to share that with everybody so that you will have the same information:

Q: The rules mention that the winning games will be translated into other languages and ported to multiple platforms, is that something that we should include in our entry?

A: No.

Do not worry about additional languages or platforms for your entry. Focus on making your game the best - and most effective - game given the considerable challenge we're throwing at you this year.

If your game is one of the winners then we'll work on translations to other languages and porting to other platforms afterwards.
