Game studies today: special issue online

minicjcs
Our special issue Vol 10.2 on Game Studies is online now. It is the result of a fine piece of curation by our Guest Editors Jan Gonzalo (URV), Antonio Planells (TecnoCampus, UPF) and Víctor Navarro (CESAG UPComillas), who have ensured a rich and balanced collection of topics and approaches.
Editors say about this issue:

“From the perspective of the game as a cultural object, this issue addresses different problems such as the historiographic vision of the analog game, or the always complex concept of authorship in the process of game creation.”

The following articles are included in the Special Issue:
