I am intrigued. Will add the book to my list. Would you consider lending your brain to the design or development of a 4GW game?

I'd consider it, I guess.

One kind of exists: A Force More Powerful is the nonviolence trainer/simulator to accompany the movie and book of the same name. It is, however, kind of idiosyncratic. Perhaps due to the subject matter, I think it suffers from a poor player feedback mechanism--although that might just be realism at work.

The advantage as a game of 4GW over nonviolence is that the outputs are so much easier to quantify.
