Daily Thoughts 87: Fun and Games

Author's Selfie I spent the majority of my time today studying. Much of that was focused on my gamifying information class. The focus is on bringing game elements to information science topics. I’m mostly focused on public libraries, administration, data, and assessment. I came into the day with bigger ambitions than time. I did manage to complete quite a bit today. I just would have liked to do more.

Oxygen Not Included

On my break today I tried out the alpha build of Klei Entertainment’s Oxygen Not Included. It’s a fun colony building game along the lines of Craft the World or similar games. As it is an alpha build it is still not finished and will change before it is done. Even so, it was very engaging to play. I could see similar gameplay elements going into some sort of library simulation!
