Symposium: Gone Home, Thursday 12/5

Gone Home, rather surprisingly to me, has excited a lot of controversy, largely because of this review by Ian Bogost. It’ll probably work as a jumping off place for discussion in any case. My principal interest in the game is in the way it shapes immersion, of course; I think issues of content vs. ruleset (that false dichotomy, in my opinion) will link Bogost’s concerns with our usual ones.

We’ll meet Thursday, December 5, at 9:30pm EST / 6:30pm PST; voice chat over mumble, leave a comment if you need the connection info. Talk to you then!
