He’s back! Our homeboy who hit it big with the world’s first chart-topping video game played through a female protagonist! From Pong to Doom and beyond, the cultural expansion and global reach of games has ushered in a new era of diversity, story-telling and representation, along with cautionaries over their social impact. Games from around the world now explore issues of war, abuse, poverty, racism, sexism, even colonialism. Generations raised with computer games as an organic part of a media diet now accept and embrace them as a valid aesthetic force and all that implies. Christian Divine, writer for Life is Strange, the first video game to win a Peabody Award (along with a BAFTA), explores this strange new world with behind-the-scenes insights and interactive audience gameplay! Come early for a 25-min. opening set of choice clips from “classic” computer-geek teen flicks from the 80s. *$9
