From the introduction:
What if Games+Learning+Society wasn’t just a conference? What if its appeal wasn’t just the discussions of video games, hanging out with smart people, and enjoying the cheese-and-beer-filled backdrop of Madison, Wisconsin? What if it was really all about a vicious hunt for grant funding, petty squabbles over minor theoretical differences, and the incessant clashing of academic egos? What if GLS 9.0 was about revealing a world of petty infighting, academic blood feuds, and sad, lonely people succumbing to their basest human desires? (Moreso than usual, I mean).
Games+Learning+Impropriety is a Playset that allows you to explore such a world. A world in which all of the stresses of the lives of academics, game developers, and educators are at play — and hilariously so. It’s a Games+Learning+Society 9.0 Conference speedrun, on Heroic mode. With permadeath.
