Videogames and Postcolonialism: Empire Plays Back By Dr. Souvik Mukherjee
English | PDF | 2017 | 126 Pages | ISBN : 3319548212 | 1.64 MB
This book focuses on the almost entirely neglected treatment of empire and colonialism in videogames. From its inception in the nineties, Game Studies has kept away from these issues despite the early popularity of videogame franchises such as Civilization and Age of Empire. This book examines the complex ways in which some videogames construct conceptions of spatiality, political systems, ethics and society that are often deeply imbued with colonialism.
