"In this game that we’re playing": George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Video Games

The Department of Informatics is proud to present
Soraya Murray, Associate Professor, Department of Film and Digital Media, UC Santa Cruz.  This talk proposes that the critical influence of Nineteen Eighty-Four exists not only in video game narratives and the constitution of their navigable spaces, but also in the wide variety of strategies, rule-based systems, rhetorical capacities, ethical problematics and—most importantly—their “better” kinds of failure.
