This is LONG overdue, but I want to send out my warmest thanks for the invitation to keynote at this year’s Refiguring Innovation in Games [ReFiG] Conference this past October. What a wonderful, varied and stimulating gathering of ideas from students and colleagues. Special thanks to Jen Jenson, Helen Kennedy, Emma Westecott, Suzanne de Castell, Colleen Thumlert and everyone who helped make ReFiG so special.
Big News: The new Critical Inquiry issue (Autumn 2018) contains a triptych of game studies essays by Patrick Jagoda, @noahwf, and me @sorayamurray.

Thanks to @intlplaysummit for a great day of conversation and sharing about how to make games more than they are. Special thanks to @ColinCampbellx
@Polygon for his excellent moderation of our panel, and Paul Cross, @Ubisoft. #intlplay18. If you were interested in the books I mentioned, see the photo. Enjoy!
Looking forward to a fine conversation with some new friends at the Intentional Play Summit. Games can be so much more, and we are going to put our heads together and talk about it.
Hey Everybody, if you’d like a mini intro to my book, ON VIDEO GAMES, have a look at this feature story and video just published at UCSC’s News page. Thanks to Scott Rappaport and Nick Gonzales for pulling this together.
