Infinite Reflections

This is a Spark to change the world. The basics and ideals of this game have been discussed in the Kickstarter campaign. But there is so much more that this game has to offer.

Spark Community isn’t just a game, but also a blueprint of real-world life skills. The game can likewise be used as a blueprint of real-world cooperative community-building. An online version could even pave the way for a real one.

Picture a game that has been upgraded to contain the specifics of the real world that waits outside your door. You can explore and cultivate the online version of that world and build a community with players who live nearby. Finally, you can use the skills developed in Spark to create your own real community that mirrors your online environment! Read more
