Description Edit | History

From Editor's Introduction:

I ask, "Is emotion in games overrated? It seems like these days it's all about pushing different buttons to give players emotional kicks. What happened to games that involve thinking?"

Highlights

Porn Star Dungeons - Not your mom's dungeons
Repairing Reality - The Gospel According to St. Jane
Gender Equality - This is a man's (fictional) world!
Reclaiming the Streets - Panic on the streets of Oslo
Nordic Larp - Those f***ckers are crazy. Oh, wait, they're us.
Father's Role - A happy little family game
Shakespeare's System - Now you, too, can be killed in theatrical crisis!
Social Observation - What are those people doing?
Recipes for Revolution - Just add a pinch of larp.
Fabricated Realities - But a game a within a game.
The First Time I Ever Died - It probably gets old after a while, though.
No Dice, No table - They game from the game down under.
