Christy Dena on Emotion and the Self in Games

Christy Dena on Emotion and the Self in Games | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

'There are some books that carry you along a journey until your tears make it impossible to read. Films and television shows, too. Games evoke emotion in a similar way to non-interactive works, with some exceptions – the greatest difference being emotion facilitated through action. In this essay, I look at games and electronic literature that have triggered my emotions and reflect on how this was achieved.

Charlie Jane Anders:  "Worldbuilding is the bedrock of science fiction and fantasy. We obsess about it constantly, because characters and plots are often only as compelling as the worlds they inhabit. We've decried bad worldbuilding before -- but what makes worldbuilding great?"

OK  a  personal moment of levity.  Ha ha ha ha hee hee. You know i tried to reach Jaunt after they put out an open invitation for anyone with experience to call them. They did not even have the courtesyto respond!

Much like Mr Einstein and Tesla  i am man who wants to share his experience and knowledge  but it seems they are all locked up in their own little world and think that IP should remain 100 percent theirs.  There is not one part of what they have attempted to do original! They are  stumbling along a road that many others conquered long ago. They may be motivated, inspired, possibly passionate. STUDIO  Execs of LA  if you invest in these folks you are  investing in hard development and  it will still take them years to figure it out unless they just copy the proposed solutions i put forth over the years. OR you could hire me. However i think with my hard critique they will take it personally and not respond anyway!

I do like having a blog it allows me to vent my frustrations :-)
