    Designer: James Lomuscio

    I’m James Lomuscio, a game designer and entrepreneur out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I help run Obscure Games, the Pittsburgh games collective, and I’m the CEO of a startup called Ludo Mechanica, a playification company that makes un-fun things a little more fun. Right now we’re developing a series of mobile apps to help people have fun breaking their bad habits (usually not so fun).

    I’m deeply interested in the philosophy of sport and games, particularly how a game’s ethos informs cultural values, and how the culture helps form the games it plays. The interplay there is fascinating.
