Jetset for iPhone After many hold-ups at security, Jetset: A Game for Airports is out for the iPhone.

While the game itself makes an argument, Bogost also offers an argument in old-fashioned format about how we might discern a proceduralist style emerging in games, even as the “games as art” discussion keeps on growing without fruit.
