ETC Press is excited to announce the release of “Well Played 3.0: Video Games, Value and Meaning” by Drew Davidson et al.
Following on Well Played 1.0 and 2.0, this book is full of in-depth close readings of video games that parse out the various meanings to be found in the experience of playing a game. Contributors analyze sequences in a game in detail in order to illustrate and interpret how the various components of a game can come together to create fulfilling a playing experience unique to this medium. Contributors again look at video games, some that were covered in Well Played 1.0 and 2.0 as well as new ones, in order to provide a variety of perspectives on more great games.
Well Played 3.0 is going to be the last book. We’re now going to follow these three books with a regular on-going Well Played journal series open to anyone who is interested in submitting an essay analyzing a game. We’re also going to host Well Played tracks with live play and analysis of games at the Games, Learning and Society Conference and at IndieCade as well.
