Second Person at USC

by Noah Wardrip-Fruin · , 12:03 am

This coming Wednesday, Jordan Mechner, Mark Marino, Jeremy Douglass, and yours truly will be at USC for an evening of discussion around “writing and gameplay” — in part as a celebration of the publication of Second Person. As Mark discusses over at WRT, even with four speakers we’re barely able to scratch the surface of the book’s diversity. But I’m very glad to have one of the world’s most respected game designers (and game writers, who also makes films) on stage with interdisciplinary scholar/artists like Mark and Jeremy. It should be a fun evening.

The talk will be in the Interactive Media Lab of USC’s Interactive Media Division (in Room 201 upstairs in the School’s Zemeckis Center). It’s located on the corner of 32nd and Figuerora just south of the downtown area. It’s from 6-8pm, and I hope to see some GTxA readers there.
