On Eludamos


A new issue of Eludamos is out. This time around they published the best papers from the Vienna Games Conference, this time titled “Future and Reality of Gaming (FROG Conference)”. Mittel’s piece, where he “gameplay and storytelling co-mingle in two very different franchises with both cult and mainstream appeal: the television series Lost and the game series Portal” seems specially interesting. I also know several colleagues who might be interested in Ee’s piece on what makes a good MMO leader. It also has some other interesting-looking pieces that I’ve yet to go through. Make sure to check it out HERE.
