A lot has changed in the world of digital play over the past decade. The speed and power of processors have produced games that we couldn’t have imagined a few years ago, as well as making it completely normal to while away hours on everyday mobile phones, rather than requiring the purchase of a specific game-playing device. One crucial change is the financial model underpinning play in a digital world. In this blog, Al Mik discusses the problematic nature of commercially-driven models of digital play and how they affect children’s creativity and freedom online.
