DAVID CAGE: INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES BEYOND THE ADVENTURE

Guglielmo de Gregori, Marco Accordi Rickards, Micaela Romanini



 

Launched in 2002, the Ludologica Collection examines the most important video games of all time. Each volume is dedicated to a key theme or a seminal title. The discussed texts are placed within the production of the game designer and the genre of development and are analyzed in depth. From Will Wright to Shigeru Miyamoto, from Hideo Kojima to Richard Garriott, Ludologica thus creates an original mosaic of aesthetics, genres, and autonomous intentions with few comparisons in the current publishing landscape. The collection offers a new way to look at video games with an approach that is both accessible and stimulating. Among the authors are prominent figures from specialized criticism, university professors from prestigious institutions, and enthusiasts.


David Cage: Interactive Experiences Beyond the Adventure is the first monograph dedicated to one of the most important game designers of all time, David Cage. Founder of Quantic Dream and author of Omikron: The Nomad Soul (1994), Fahrenheit (2005), Heavy Rain (2010), and Beyond: Two Souls (2012), Cage is not your typical video game creator. He wears thick glasses, his mind is filled with mathematical formulas, and he has a wide range of highly varied interests. None of these are characteristic of the character Cage, who is, in fact, more akin to an intellectual, an artist, but above all, an enlightened innovator. Through a compelling analysis, the authors highlight the artistic, cinematic, and playful influences that characterize Cage's innovative works, urging the reader to reconsider the very potential of the video game medium.
