I was recently on a conference on gamification (using game elements in other practices to make them a more pleasant experience or to create incentives) and one of the speakers was Alex Fleetwood of hide&seek (hideandseek.net).

Hide & Seek create games for public spaces, so things that work in museums or outside in parks or on town squares, etc.

He told me he was greatly influenced by what was going on in the scene of Arts games, storytelling games (think norwegian style roleplaying poems), etc.

So now I was wondering if anyone has any more ideas like this? Heard of any examples? I'd love to find out more but don't really find the right keywords to google cheers!

Wait, what? "Norwegian-style roleplaying poems"?

This is something I need to know more about!

Whenever anyone mentions hide and seek, I can't help but recall this...



(And I'm intrigued by "Norwegian-style roleplaying poems" too.)

I was thinking of The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen.



BTW: I managed to order a copy of Norwegian Style from the following if anyone is interested... http://www.lulu.com/gb/en/shop/matthijs-holter-and-even-t%C3...

there's a website - not sure if it's the official thing or what:
http://norwegianstyle.wordpress.com/
it's got a LOT of info and lots of free to download things.

basically these poems seem to me like improv exercises. they have some gaming elements like cards thrown in sometimes as well.

think of indie rpg favorites like jason morningstar's Fiasco but shorter.
