The Entrepreneurial Game Studio is partnering with the National Science Foundation to create a pervasive mixed-reality game: Hacktion. Hacktion blends educational and public art game research into a mobile game in which players learn about cybersecurity through physical play. Instead of playing at their laptops, players utilize their mobile phones and take to the streets while playing. Hacktion is designed to inspire civic playfulness and encourage learners to engage with their surroundings and their bodies as they learn about cybersecurity.
