Secondary Worlds and Co-creation

To assist you in unpacking the text, in Teams:

  • post a personal example of a game you have played that involved an alternate world - this may relate to a book or movie, or have been developed purely for the game.
  • Try and describe the Philosophical, the Epic, and the Naïve aspects of the game.
  • Was there any opportunity for you to contribute to this narrative?
  • What examples of secondary World Co-creation exist for the game (you may need to search for this, but look for examples of fan fiction, movies, tv-series, memorabilia, action figures, etc.).
  • While not supported by the Twine tool, describe a process by which players might contribute to the co-creation of your computer game (assuming the game tool permitted this).
  • Describe the mental model that player develop using your computer game - using the three levels of Philosophical, the Epic, and the Naïve.
  • What type of game (Taxonomy) would your game best suit and why?
  • Using the GPACKs model, describe what pedagogy, technologies, content, and players, that your game would be most effective for, educationally.
