Gamexx is happy to announce the release of
UrthGame's Prosperity Path Games.
These games are built using cutting edge opengl 3d technology -- similar to that you'd find in any
modern 3d shooter.
Some folks have referred to these games as casual gaming gone wild.
That's not quite right. It is true that Prosperity Path games have simple rules and don't require a large
time commitment or special skills to play -- thus making them easy to access and play by even the newest players.
However, Prosperity Path gaming orbs fall more into the genre of
Serious games are described as "intended to educate or train the player. These games tend to promote
'education, science, social change, or even health care.'
Some of these games have no specific ending or goal in the game.
Rather, the player learns a real life lesson from the game."
The above definition for Serious games definitely fits the Prosperity Path Gaming Orbs. The orbs
are intended to educate (check), train (check), promote social change (check), and even address wellness issues
(double-check). If not for the unfortunately choice of the word 'serious', it would be easy to
label the Prosperity Path games as Serious Games. But, given the fun, mirth, and high quantities of
levity the word serious seems a little out of place. Let us know if you find a better word than 'serious'.
