Just Press Play

Just Press Play is an achievement system developed in RIT’s School of Interactive Games & Media, which adds a game layer to our undergraduates’ daily life. It is intended to encourage students to engage in a playful way with their educational environments and experiences, to reflect on their accomplishments, and to strengthen their sense of competence and progress.

Picture the Impossible

Picture the Impossible is a community-based game developed jointly by the Lab for Social Computing at the Rochester Institute of Technology and the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The game engages members of the community in exploration of the City of Rochester and encourages creativity and charitable giving in the community. Players participate in a range of activities, including casual Web-based games, games that bring players out to events and locations throughout the city, and games that involve the tangible aspects of the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper itself.
