Elevators (Lori Rupert)

In this game, the player starts out in a magnificent hall. Due to the shadows, all they can really see is an elevator door. Upon entering the elevator, the player comes in contact with a woman in a black dress named Morganna. Before disappearing, Morganna hands the player a note and a set of keys. Using these keys, the player has the option of examining six different rooms. Three of these rooms hold danger and three are safe. The player is searching for an object. The player is unsure of what the object is but will be aware of what they lost once they find it. It can lie in anyone of the six rooms. The end is the surprise when the player finds out what they were actually looking for.

CST Project 1 (Lori Rupert)

The whole point of this game is to experience life in another person's shoes. Hopefully, by doing this, the player can generate a sense of what it is like to be a completely different person and will hopefully be less judgeful to those they meet after playing a game where they can experience something like this.

Video Game Portfolio: Cultural Games (Stephan Puff)

Puff.png

This semester I had the honor of speaking at a conference here at Seton Hill for Holocaust education. I spoke about video games as a tool and a cultural device for the coming generations. The speech was mostly to help scholars come into communication with Video game makers and the cultural impact of video games. No, not the violence that is blamed on video games, but the metaphor and story skills that video games teach the younger generations. Yes, metaphor is not just a literary device, but moves to all form of language, propositional and non propostional experiences.
