The Art History of Games

January 12, 2010

A conference near and dear to the hearts of Applied Game Design: the Art History of Games, an event taking place in Atlanta, GA February 4-6. This will be a great opportunity to delve more deeply and thoughtfully into the intersections, parallels and differences between games and art and their respective histories and futures.

Speakers include Brenda, but also John Romero, Frank Lantz, Jesper Juul, Henry Lowood, and Christiane Paul (a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art). The full schedule is available here.

The conference will also host the premiere of three commissioned games by Jason Rohrer, Tale of Tales and Eric Zimmerman and architect Nathalie Pozzi. Teasers for the games available here.

Brenda’s game Train will as well be at the conference for those who haven’t had the opportunity to play it yet.

The conference is organized by Ian Bogost, Michael Nitsche and John Sharp for the co-organizing institutions, SCAD-Atlanta and Georgia Tech.
