Contextualizing Research Through Serious Game Design

Document Type


Presentation Date


Abstract or Description

This presentation is part of a panel which investigates the intersection between research and playing/designing serious games. The presenters will discuss the procedural rhetoric and experience of research created by playing Soma, the influence the positionality of the programmer has on the presentation of research through games, and the ways writing interactive fiction contextualizes secondary research, creating an inquiry process of productive failure.
