Playing at a Distance 

Neu erschienen: Sonia Fizeks Buch „Playing at a Distance: Borderlands of Video Game Aesthetic“ ist ab sofort im Open Access erhältlich.

Do we play video games or do video games play us? Is nonhuman play a mere paradox or the future of gaming? In „Playing at a Distance“ (MIT Press 2022), Sonia Fizek engages with these and many more daunting questions, forging new ways to think and talk about games and play that decenter the human player and explore a variety of play formats and practices that require surprisingly little human action. The book is available in an open access digital format on the publisher’s official website: 

Sonia Fizek is Associate Professor of Games and Media Studies at the Cologne Game Lab at the Technical University of Cologne, Germany, and member of the AG Games.
