article imageOne Laptop Per Child group working on developing video games

Has the One Laptop Per Child project started to lose its way? Next month over 100 game developers will meet to pitch ideas for a range of free games for the OLPC laptops.
Game Jam on June 8 to 10 could mark a big change in the way programs, or in this case games, are written for the OLPC project.
Over the course of the three days, the mix of software developers, musicians, artists, writers, and educators will design, write and code for a handful of games that will be released under an Open License.
I just hope that these games, as well as being fun to play, are educational. After all, that was the main aim of the OLPC project.
All the people taking part are doing so for free, although the group that comes up with the best game will win a OLPC notebook and free passes for next year's conference.
The thing that worries me about this is that I don't think it will be long before some of the more dodgey of the software developers bring out games that the users have to pay for.
