Invoking EVOKE

Well, it was bound to happen: a website parodying the World Bank’s EVOKE social networking/game project. You’ll find it at INVOKE: An ARG to Save the World Bank.

As for the actual EVOKE project, I’m too busy enjoying food from (hypothetical) floating Tokyo greenhouses while dancing the night away in (simulated) Rio on (virtual) Piezo-electric power-generating dance floors to write a full review at the moment. However, I’ll be posting a full review at some point in May, when the project approaches its end.

In the meantime, you’ll find some coverage at InventorSpotFox NewsHuffington Post, the Alternative Reality Gaming Network, and elsewhere.
