GORMLEY - MICHAEL LONG - JUNE 10
A war strategy video game developed in Saskatoon is up for a prestigious award next month. 'Radio General,' which was developed by Saskatoon's Michael Long, has been nominated for the best learning game at the 2021 Games for Change Festival in New York, which has been called Sundance for video games. Long went to great lengths to ensure the game contained an accurate portrayal of Canadian WWII battles (often underrepresented or absent from video games), and the game is already being used in some high schools as a teaching tool. Long joins Gormley to tell us more.
