Transmedia, de la rébellion à la récupération

Transmedia, de la rébellion à la récupération | Transmedia Activism | Scoop.it

Le “transmedia“, mot à la mode dans les milieux numériques, et son géniteur, le jeu à réalité alternée, ont-ils été détournés de leur mission originelle, la subversion, la remise en cause de la réalité consensuelle ?

Alexandre Pierrin's insight:

Excellent article de Rémi Sussan sur les origines du transmédia et ses liens avec le cyber-punk... et le transhumanisme !

Technology can make the ultimate fantasy come true: we live in the stories we watch on the screen. That will re-invent the way we think about brands.

Lindsay Wilson's curator insight, August 15, 2013 1:10 PM

How would you feel to listen to stories that interact with the GPS of your smartphone/tablet/computer to include appropriate sound cues and character introductions?

Sandrine Delage (Borgé)'s curator insight, August 17, 2013 2:00 AM

Bonjour,

 

L'article montre ici comment aller plus loin dans l'interaction et c'est sans doute un modèle inspirant pour l'engagement de followers sur les réseaux sociaux.

Tous les ingrédients sont présents : des personnages et une histoire qui nous accrochent et qui nous rappellent l'enfance qui n'est pas si loin, un dispositif d'interaction simple par le mobile, une prise en compte rapide du retour des utilisateurs.

Recette qui semble gagnante mais qui demande un contenu de valeur, une stratégie sans faille de l'organisation qui accompagne l'opération. Pas si simple !

 

Bonne semaine,

Can Gaming Change The World For Good? Thoughts from Asi Burak, Co-Pres of Games for Change. Forbes

Can Gaming Change The World For Good? Thoughts from Asi Burak, Co-Pres of Games for Change. Forbes | Transmedia Activism | Scoop.it
In an interview with Asi Burak, Co-President of Games for Change, we discussed the past, present and future of gaming for social change. As Co-President of Games for Change, Asi leads on the curation, development and execution of programs and services...

 

Asi Burak, Games for Change: The concept of “gaming for good” or games for social impact / learning was in very early stages 10 years ago. The Serious Games movement started in 2002, and Games for Change followed suit in 2004 with the premise that games could live beyond entertainment and contribute to improve our society. In essence – to make the world a better place.

 

The early advocates and creators that bought into this premise looked at gaming through a new lens – they are not just a pastime, but becoming a mature and diverse medium, and just as we are accustomed to documentaries, non-fiction books or graphic novels, games could help us better understand the world around us and relate to real-world issues.

Better yet, as a participatory medium, games are very good in demonstrating cause and effect relations, breaking down complex systems, presenting multiple perspectives and at times serving as an open-ended environment that invites learning and exploration....

‘Transmedia Engagement: Participatory Culture to Activism’

‘Transmedia Engagement: Participatory Culture to Activism’ | Transmedia Activism | Scoop.it

The following is a talk I gave June 1 in Toronto which sprang from my ongoing interest in The Hunger Games as a transmedia campaign. I wrote an earlier blog post, ‘Why The Hunger Games is Not Harry Potter, and Why You Should Care,’ in response to finishing the novels, which were far more disturbing than I had expected. Further mulling on Geoffrey Long’s How to Ride a Lion: A Call for a Higher Transmedia Criticism and Jeff Gomez & Fabian Niciezo’s “6 Reasons Why ‘the Avengers’ is Crushing it at the Box Office” resulted in this case study on ‘Transmedia Engagement: Participatory Culture to Activism.’ Your thoughts are welcome!
