Jane McGonigal is one of the worlds most popular video game designers but her roots did not start sitting in front of a television screen. When she was 21 years old she went to the New York Public Library and educated herself in computer science and physics. She used what she had learned at the library to receive a degree from California in its graduate game design program. However she never forgot her roots at the library where she said “You almost feel like you could think bigger thoughts or dream bigger dreams.”. People think of our generation as overweight kids who would rather sit in front of a television than play outside or read a book, McGonigal is trying to change that image. She has created a smartphone based video game where the users partake in a scavenger hunt at the library and complete different challenges. She has named it “Find the Future”. Players will be able to download the app straight to there phones. After the items are downloaded the users must go to the library in person where they will take pictures of QR codes. These codes will be on 100 of the library’s more recognizable items. Once they find the items they will have to complete different objectives. For example, when a player finds Charles Dickens letter opener they will be asked to write a letter to someone they love. When they find the Declaration of Independence they will be asked write a declaration of their own. If the player complete the challenges they will be able to put all their works into a book that can be bound for a certain price. Once the first 500 users compile their works it will be bound and stored in the library for everyone to see. She hopes that these challenges will help bring history to life and get people to make some history of their own.
