Interpretation as Play

Project Details


This project is exploring the role of comprehension in digital games, where interpretation of narrative can be considered a form of play in itself. This project involves the investigation of discourse comprehension in cognitive psychology to understand how players interpret narrative, with a consequent focus on the operationalisation of this psychological understanding in approaches to practice in storytelling and game design that facilitate narrative interpretation as play.
