    Return of the Obra Dinn – Gaming Journal 9/12/21

    by Thomas Pulsifer As I progress further through Return of the Obra Dinn, I continuously find myself surprised at every turn and glued to the edge of my seat. The fact that a game with this much depth has been created using nothing but still 3-D dioramas is incredibly impressive. Oftentimes, these scenes are framedContinue reading "Return of the Obra Dinn – Gaming Journal 9/12/21"

    Response to ‘Kurt Vonnegut on the Shape of Stories‘ and ‘The Machine is Us/ing Us’ by Michael Wesch by Thomas Pulsifer Watching Kurt Vonnegut’s lecture on how traditional stories follow very similar plot structures was entertaining, though not all that surprising.

    by Thomas Pulsifer Being a huge fan of ‘Papers, Please,’ I’d been looking forward to eventually getting around to playing ‘Return of the Obra Dinn.’ Now, thanks to my Games & Culture class, I have the perfect excuse! The first thing I notice about Obra Dinn is that the graphics are extremely minimalist, which, I’dContinue reading "Return of the Obra Dinn – Gaming Journal 9/2/21"
