  • Shadowlands Immersive Experience in Games March 31st

    This immersive experience covers the covenants (zones) in the newest expansion of World of Warcraft looking through a Mechanics-Dynamics-Aesthetics (MDA). The recent expansion of World Warcraft is focused on a liminal state of death and rebirth where even player levels and abilities have been reset. It has also introduced four new design styles and storylines to the world. We will look holistically at the mechanics, dynamics, and aesthetics that each of these bring to game-play and role-play.

    There are two ways for participation: Join us in Discord only  https://discord.gg/v3Cqzrj or in Discord and World of Warcraft. Systems Requirements and additional information is provided at http://bit.ly/VWBPEWOW21


  • Snow Crash Book Club running March 22 - April 5th

    Hello Everyone,

    You're invited to our Snow Crash Book Club. The  Games & Sims Book Club will start on Monday, March 22, 2021 and end on April 11, 2021. During this time we will have three synchronous meetings on Mar 22, 29, and April 5th starting at 5pm (Pacific Time (US)). We will meet synchronously in the Second Life Virtual environment at the CVL Holodeck: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cookie/202/196/1006 for approximately one hour. Additionally, we have created a Discord Channel for asynchronous discussions and other activities that we will share once the book club starts. You can either create an account for discord via your browser or download the desktop app from https://discord.com/ prior to the start of the book club. Discord allows the sharing of images, videos, and voice if you are interested in engaging over participants. 

    Snow Crash is considered by many to be one of the seminal books that created the cyberpunk genre of literature. It has also been created for inspiring many of today’s virtual worlds, augmented reality and virtual reality apps, and gave us context for how immersive online virtual environments could look like and how our physical and virtual identities could be managed, merged, and manipulated. 

    Weekly resources, reminders, and content will be provided at the Metagame Book Club’s website: https://sites.google.com/site/metagamebookclub/spring-2021 This Book Club will be an English Language book club, however all fans of Snow Crash, book clubs, or those looking to try a virtual book club for the first time are welcome to join in and share your perspectives and experiences.
