Keynote “Digital Games as Systems” (Aki Järvinen)


What characterises a digital game? How can you approach this medium properly? And to what extent is a digital game a system? In the keynote “Digital Games as Systems” Aki Järvinen, Ph.D. occupies himself with these questions. He will deal with the characteristics and style of computer games from a systematic point of view and he will show that there is even a playful approach to analyse this complex medium.

Aki Järvinen’s talk is located between Game Studies and Game Design: on the one hand, as General Manager at the mobile games studio Playdemic (UK), and on the other hand, as academic who is involved in theories and methods for Game Design and Game Studies in his dissertation „Games without Frontiers“.

The keynote will be held in English.
