It uniquely focuses first and foremost on the partnership between the content expert, or client, and the game designer.

The book also offers a practical set of tools and activities to contextualize the practice within a variety of different scenarios. It includes interviews with industry leaders, content experts, game designers, museum professionals, and educators who are all using game practices and ideas in new and innovative ways.
