Video games have become an increasingly ubiquitous part of society due to the proliferation and use of mobile devices.  Video Games and Creativity explores research on the relationship between video games and creativity with regard to play, learning, and game design.  It answers such questions as:

Is there a place for video games in the classroom?

What types of creativity are needed to develop video games?
