Symposium: Catherine, March 7, 2013

CatherineIn this month’s symposium, we’re going to talk about the game Catherine. It generated a fair amount of discussion when it came out in 2011 (as you’ll see in the links below); I think it might be time to revisit the game in light of the games that 2012 brought us. Personally, I’m particularly curious to see if our experiences playing The Walking Dead have informed our views on Catherine, given the two games’ approach to choice and questions, their unconventional narrators and characters, and how their genres relate to their narrative choices.

We’ll be meeting a little later than normal: we’ll start the discussion at 11pm EST / 8pm PST. We’ll meet on Thursday, March 7th; discussion will be over Mumble, leave a note in the comments if you need the Mumble contact info.

I’d like to experiment with providing some links in advance that could inform the discussion; this is probably too many, but, well, I keep on not getting around to writing a Critical Compilation for the game, so I have to put these links somewhere! (What do people think? Is this volume of links too much, or is it actually useful/interesting?)
