Join us next Tuesday, October 10 at 6 PM EST in-person at TAG or online (Zoom link to be shared closer to the date of the event).
We will be hearing from independent game designer and new media scholar Jordan Magnuson about his book “Game Poems: Videogame Design as Lyric Practice” which is available in open-access in so many formats.
From the publisher: Scholars, critics, and creators describe certain videogames as being “poetic,” yet what that means or why it matters is rarely discussed. In Game Poems: Videogame Design as Lyric Practice, independent game designer Jordan Magnuson explores the convergences between game making and lyric poetry and makes the surprising proposition that videogames can operate as a kind of poetry apart from any reliance on linguistic signs or symbols.
Jordan Magnuson will present his work to us for the first 45 minutes, followed by a Q&A session.
