Hi again from your friends at the RPG Series. With apologies for the delay, we’re thrilled to be announcing our last event for the 2013-14 year! We hope you’ll join us Wednesday April 15th 5-8 in Denney Hall 312 for Gaming the Future: New Perspectives on Digital Entertainment. This month we wanted to try something a little different. Rather than setting the terms ourselves, we reached out to some people doing interesting and exciting work in games and game-related endeavors to see if they’d be willing to join us for a conversation about the past and future of digital entertainment.

We’re delighted to welcome (via Skype) Dr. Edmond Chang, Assistant Professor of English at Drew University and (in-person) OSU alum John Geiger, Founder and CEO of tracermedia and the truly fantastic Arcade Super Awesome. They’ll each be bringing along some games (provocations?) to get us thinking about both the history and the future of the medium.


The Line-Up:

minecraft

Minecraft – While the popular sandbox-style exploration game needs little introduction, we can safely say you’ve probably never experienced it quite like this.

lim2

Lim – A short experimental flash game about fitting in and standing out.

depression quest

Depression Quest – An interactive (non)fiction game about living with depression

retroarcade

Retro Arcade Classics – We’ll also have on hand a slew of classic arcade titles from the “Golden Age” of Arcade Gaming.

And as always, there will be plenty of delicious food and fantastic conversation.
