Maybe me! In my next life, I guess.

Like Richard, my eyes were opened by Myst (well, actually by Spelunx,  
its predecessor, which BTW I'd love to find a copy of). I am bored  
bored bored by most games nowadays and so actively repelled by the  
pervasive violence that even though I belong to the Game Developers  
Association, I regard it chiefly as a theoretical study. However, may  
I recommend the SIGs of International Game Developers Association as  
a venue for making connections:

in particular, the education SIG:
