Games and Bereavement: How Video Games Represent Attachment, Loss, and Grief

Transcript Verlag, 2018 - 273 pagina's
How can videogames portray love and loss? Games and Bereavement answers this question by analyzing five videogames and conducting a participatory design study with grievers. Sabine Harrer offers both theoretical and practical perspectives on videogames and grief and suggests a design model for videogames to include grievers into game development. Overall, she explores how videogames can be used as a contemporary medium for personal storytelling.
