Watch now: the Games Institute Multidisciplinary Panel on Cooperative Games

Monday, March 25, 2019

Watch the full recording of our Multidisciplinary Panel about Cooperative Games that took place Thursday, March 14th, 2019. Our three PhD student speakers discussed co-operative games as a genre through their  perspectives and experiences with the games Spirit Island (2017; board game) and Overcooked 2 (2018; video game).

We asked the panelists to use Spirit Island and Overcooked 2 as a springboard for a larger discussion about how they would research the genre of co-operative games. Each of our speakers brought their unique disciplinary backgrounds into the discussion and showcased how collaborations between different games research approaches constructs a more robust understanding of games overall.
