Episode #13: A New Player Has Joined the Game
On this episode of The Book Project, Sarah gets her head out of the books and learns about video game narratives from brilliant gamer girl Zoë Tustin. We learn the difference between embedded and emerging narrative, discuss how games reflect our present reality, and briefly touch on what we should have learned from #gamergate.
Recommendations this week are His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet, Resident Evil 7, and The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King. Spoiler: No happy endings here.
