Understanding Interactive Digital Narrative Immersive Expressions for a Complex Time” de Hartmut Koenitz
onde consta..
“This remarkably clearly written and timely critical evaluation of core issues in the study and application of interactive digital narrative (IDN) untangles the range of theories and arguments that have developed around IDN over the past three decades.

Looking back over the past 30 years of theorizing around interactivity, storytelling, and the digital across the fields of game design/game studies, media studies, and narratology, as well as interactive documentary and other emerging forms, this text offers important and insightful correctives to common misunderstandings that pervade the field. This book also changes the perspective on IDN by introducing a comprehensive conceptual framework influenced by cybernetics and cognitive narratology, addressing limitations of perspectives originally developed for legacy media forms. Applying its framework, the book analyzes successful works and lays out concrete design advice, providing instructors, students, and practitioners with a more precise and specific understanding of IDN.

This will be essential reading for courses in interactive narrative, interactive storytelling, and game writing, as well as digital media more generally.”

“Homo ludens presenta diferentes posiciones respecto al videojuego yplantea preguntas que obligan a poner en cuestión nuestras certezas. Adiferencia de otras exposiciones sobre el tema, basadas en aspectoshistóricos, simbólicos y visuales, esta adopta una perspectiva crítica:invita al espectador a reflexionar y a tomar partido, al tiempo quemuestra todas las interpretaciones y potencialidades de los videojuegos:desde su impacto en el mundo del arte, la computación y la ciencia a losindie games que aportan visiones alternativas que permiten romperestigmas y estereotipos y contribuir a la aparición de una nuevasensibilidad social o medioambiental.”

Gostava de ler este artigo “The Pursuit of Fun in Digital Games: From the Sandpit to the Console and Beyond” d eDiego Fellipe Tondorf, e Marcelo da Silva Hounsell

“Fun has long been considered inherent in the act of playing. Some authors argue that it is an element always present in games, and others that it is not, that there are several types of fun and several factors that change the perception of fun, but fun has always been associated with positive effects on players. As a subjective concept, and dependent on context and player experience, understanding fun in games is a challenge for developers. With the development of the industry and the research on digital games, it became necessary to create new artifacts for the design and validation of fun. Understanding fun is also essential for serious games, which have been criticized for not being fun. Thus, better understanding fun and how to achieve it is a big challenge where crucial outcomes could benefit application areas such as education, health, and others. But the roadmap for such an area of research has not been established. This chapter presents fun as a grand challenge in games and digital entertainment and proposes a path for future research.”

Gostava de ler este artigo “Platform for Interactive Audiovisual Productions and Generative Art Using Processing” de P. D‘Amato e Diana Karina Leon

“Through computers, artists have found a way to enhance their production, discovering new ways for communicating their productions and devising new forms of expression. Being able to make the most of these facilities requires interdisciplinary groups that seek to enhance creativity and at the same time generate new forms of creation. In particular, an artist takes advantage of the different tools available, from sound to draws in order to provide immersive experiences. This paper presents a platform that implements image and audio processing algorithms, to facilitate the artist’s task, in what is called generative art. With the platform it is possible to create animated digital images in real time that adapt to the sound’ properties and that can be used in live audiovisual performances.”

“Call for Papers KuI 2023
To this day, our understanding of technology has been shaped by the idea of industrialisation as progress that makes our daily life safer and easier, but at the same time more diverse. In our post-digital age, physical and virtual systems are becoming more and more inseparable. Concepts for new products and systems are often conceived, implemented, and tested in digital and real environments at the same time. This is especially true for extended reality applications in which code and materiality, virtuality and reality form a unit.
Discussions of new materiality go hand in hand with physical and hybrid realities. At the same time, software and computer programs are increasingly helping to develop physical innovative materials for product design and other application fields. However, this new understanding of materiality is not only found in product design, but also in arts and culture created and/or presented in combination with digital technologies such as extended reality (VR, MR, AR).
The entanglement between the physical world and computer-generated data cuts across and expands far beyond disciplines such as human-computer interaction, machine-to-machine communication, computer graphics, sensor systems, humanities, and artistic sciences such as sound, visual, culture and design studies. With our 21st International Conference on Culture and Computer Science we want to address the multifaceted bridges between physicality and virtuality, between culture, arts, and engineering.
The Culture and Computer Science conference series will focus on best practice examples, challenges and future trends in the fields of physical and virtual spaces, mixed, extended, augmented, and virtual reality, hybrid systems, 3D technology, data collection and management, media integration, modelling, visualisation, and interaction. The conference addresses employees of cultural and creative industries, art and culture professionals, media, and communication scientists as well as computer scientists and engineers, who conduct research and development on cultural topics.

“CEEGS (Central and Eastern European Game Studies conference) is a gathering of game scholars organised annually by DiGRA Central and Eastern Europe, but its thematic scope is not limited to regional topics, and it welcomes participants from anywhere in the world. The 2023 conference will be hosted by Macromedia University in Leipzig, Germany.


Games as culture and forms of artistic expression
How games shape human discourse about society and contribute to new forms of game design and development; how they negotiate certain topics such as gender diversity, ecology, AI, human and nonhuman, politics, human philosophy.

Player experience
Game analytics and player behaviour, preferences, and the multifaceted effects of games and play.

World building and design
Cultural and ecological constructions and representations of gameworlds and the ways in which these worlds reflect and shape our understanding of reality; how gameworlds negotiate empirical reality, what elements (aesthetic, artistic traditions, etc.) they borrow, and how they re-arrange them in a coherent gameworld.

Character art and design
Artistic history and cultural expression in character design, diversity, stereotypes and breaking with them; representation of gender, monstrosity, etc., and the impact of these representations on players and society.

Narrative design
Recurring plot structures, master narratives; how ancient, literary, and transmedia plot structures influence the design of games, and how they shape our understanding of storytelling and ways of communication in the digital age.

Rules, mechanics, dynamics,
…and their relation.

Systems and ideological or utopian structures
Mechanics as metaphors; games as miniature-labs for systemic confrontations, learning from systems and cultural ramifications; if games can be seen as miniature laboratories that teach systematic thinking, which new ludic developments will influence our established systems? Which new systems will emerge and how may game design help?

Game production
Investigating the production processes involved in the creation of games, with a focus on the ethical, ecological, social, and political implications of these processes.

Gaming communities
Intercultural aspects, confrontations, groupings and forum discussions about games and culture and their interaction with game designers.

Playful communities and gamification practices
The homo ludens as a new labourer and the use of game design elements in non-gaming contexts.

AI and future technologies
How AI may inform and help game design; how AI may help in the creation of systems and meaning production; questions of authorship, etc.; the potential of virtual and augmented reality for game design and player experience.

Game accessibility and inclusivity
Examining how game design can be made more accessible to players with disabilities, and how games can promote diversity and inclusivity.

Aesthetics and design of experimental and independent games
Avant-garde experimentation in games and their theoretical input for game studies; serious games, health games, etc.; examining the impact of these games on players and society.

Game design research process
Game preproduction and research, and their influence on game design and AAA productions.”
