The Less Wrong Video Game
This page is for collecting ideas for a Less Wrong video game.
So far, we're just brainstorming ideas of how we could make a video game for teaching or testing the concepts and techniques discussed at Less Wrong.
Please feel free to post your own ideas here, or to post summaries of the ideas presented elsewhere.
A courtroom drama inspired by Phoenix Wright might be cheap to make (comparatively small amount of art resources), and apropos for teaching about argumentation. The Ren'Py visual novel engine might be easy to use for this purpose.
Here are links to some threads on the main Less Wrong site where this idea has been discussed:
