Technology, research, and science are key concepts of our modern world. They shape significant aspects of our daily lives in various forms and are therefore consciously and unconsciously perceived, adopted, and reconfigured through media. Such a form of reflection and processing, as well as their application, takes place in video and computer games. These games engage with scientific and technological developments and their potential implications for society, weaving them into a framework of speculative storytelling and captivating game design.


Edited by Arno Görgen and Rudolf Inderst, this volume outlines the diverse representations of technology, research, and science in modern video and computer games, such as the science fiction saga Mass Effect or the post-apocalyptic Fallout series. It raises questions about societal references, locations, and consequences. The authors' contributions are part of a technoscientific discourse that can be interpreted as a fusion of knowledge and innovation, providing initial insights into this exciting and largely unexplored field of research.
