Each semester, the Digital Studies Center hosts a series of Well Played events during which students, faculty, and staff discuss and play videogames. These events are based on the ETC Press Journal, Well Played, and they encourage close readings of game mechanics and narratives. Well Played sessions are free form, collaborative, and interactive. All are welcome to attend, regardless of expertise or familiarity with videogames. All attendees are invited to join in by both playing and discussing games.
Join us in ModLab (Fine Arts 215) on February 11 at 12:15 for a Well Played session about Propentine’s, With Those We Love Alive, which pulls the player’s body into the game space. The game is free, and you are welcome to bring your own computer to play it, but the DSC will also have it running on its own machines. You may also want to bring headphones, and you will need, as the game’s opening screen tells us, “a pen or sharpie nearby, something that can write on skin.”
Follow the DSC Calendar for announcements about future events.
