Local Programmer, Code Monkey, and Role Player, Mike Muldoon came into the KZSC studio for Gamers on Game to save the day.
Mike is one of the founders and CEO of Infrno.net, a website dedicated to finding other gamers throughout the world and a platform for playing paper and pencil role-playing games by using online tools. We talked about his passions, Nerdery, Gaming and Eduction.
Mike and I met at NextSpace Santa Cruz back in 2009 just as he was creating the code for the Infrno Platform which launched a little over a year ago. Since the launch, Infrno has nearly 5000 world-wide players, video conferencing and whiteboard with logged in over 13,000 hours of game play.
It was a great pleasure to speak with him about the evolution of Infrno and his next big project using the Infrno Platform to help make the world a better place through using games and game dynamics for education. The inspiration came from a GenCon game entitled National Security Decision Making involving over 100 people that play for 12 hours straight.
This made me think of a serious game created in 2007 entitled, PeaceMaker involving bringing peace to the Middle East or the agony of plunging the region into disaster.
Infrno Con 3 will be happening October 1st with two 4 hour slots for playing D&D, Pathfinder, Inspectors, Fiasco – Based on Coen Brothers.
