About this item

A literary scholar discusses digital narrative as a form, examining video game titles the same way in which a novel is examined. The author analyzes elements of storytelling in video games and discusses elements such as social and cultural relevance, theme, and symbolism. The book considers those features of video games that are unique to the form and explores how those features inform video games as digital narratives. Numerous video game stories are analyzed in terms of immersion, world building, player agency, game duration, and short- and long-form storytelling. One chapter is devoted to video game study in the higher education classroom. Some games discussed include “The Last of Us,” “Gone Home,” “Kentucky Route Zero,” and “Ultra Despair Girls.” Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
