Susan Gold has talked to us regarding an ongoing study that she and other universities are conducting around Assassins Creed Unity, and the potential for learned historical knowledge through play.
Participation includes a Free Copy of Assassins Creed Unity!
The goal of the study is to assess possible improvement in historical knowledge as a result of playing the game. If you’re interested in participating, which involves a free copy of ACU, please visit this link:
Note: not all volunteers will be selected for the study, and that it’s important that subjects not collaborate with anyone on the study’s instruments (surveys, quizzes, etc.). You may share this email with others who might be interested in participating in the such a study, be sure to have them designate they are from Northeastern’s pool of applicants. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

This month’s Boston Post Mortem is Wednesday, December 17th at Moksa in Cambridge and will begin at 7pm.
Our presentation this month will be by the folks at Disruptor Beam, who will be giving a talk entitled:
Game of Thrones Ascent on Mobile
Bringing GoTA to iOS and Android
When Disruptor Beam developed Game of Thrones Ascent, the plan was always to launch on iOS and Android shortly afterwards. More than a year after launch, we brought Game of Thrones Ascent to iOS and Android. In the process we faced enormous challenges, ranging from porting our HTML5 web front-end to handling a 600% increase in players. Join Disruptor Beam as they run us through a Post Mortem of their mobile launch, what it took to get featured by Apple, and the lasting impact of having an online game running on five platforms.
