On the 20th of May of 2010, CTS Game Studies presented in Brazil the PlayPower Project through a talk and workshop. By demonstrating various uses of games as media and a vehicle of expression, PlayPower revealed how old hardware can be used to promote different forms of entertainment, art, and education.
The Project, developed in partnership with the UCSD and the Software Studies group, aims to create educational games for 8-bit machines that cost around 10 dollars in the United States, India, and China and are connected to the TV. Jeremy Douglass, professor of the University of California of San Diego (UCSD) and Don Miller, low-bit music and visual artist, spoke about the project.
