Blog #5 – From Game to Art


Just like machinima – which can be considered art or just cool depending on context, content, and intention – your game can look different from different viewpoints. In this blog you need to look at, describe, and analyze, your game from two viewpoints: (1) as a game, and (2) as art.

Your viewpoint and description to either may be positive and they may be negative, but they must be descriptive and explanatory. You must assume that your reader has not played the same game.

Questions to think about: What is art? How does this match or not match with definitions of art that we’ve discussed. What is a game? How do games parallel definitions of art? How do games differ from art?
