While Stuart is away in Australia I’ve been tasked with keeping the ship afloat for our course on Game Culture. This includes a short talk I’ll be giving on my dissertation, putting my project in the context of interactive fiction, electronic literature, and hypertext fiction specifically. Here’s the Prezi, entitled “Revisiting Hypertext w/Calypsis: A criminally oversimplified intro to hypertext en route to discussing my dissertation.”
I’ll also be doing full lectures later this month on character creation in videogames and exploring fictional game spaces. Both talks are geared towards RPGs but many of the concepts can be applied to other types of games as well. I’ll post those Prezis when they’re done.
