Interview with Simon Egenfeldt Nielsen from Serious Games Interactive
Serious Games Interactive (SGI) started in 2006 as a research spinoff. The company was founded in cooperation with Unity Technologies as a technology provider with the ambition of making the world’s best serious games by harnessing the potential and design principles of real AAA titles. The company received considerable critical praise both from educators and students. In 2010 it was awarded a BETT Award in the category of “Secondary, FE & Skills Digital Content” for its flagship title Global Conflicts: Palestine (Gamers Gate, Manifesto Games & Macgamestore, 2007). The game Playing History – The Plague (Gamers Gate, 2009) was also awarded first place in the category of professional games (budget 40,000+ Euros) in the 1st European Best Learning Game competition.
