ASTR Conference 2016


Sam and Adrienne traveled to Minneapolis in November 2016 to participate in the American Society of Theatre Research’s annual conference as part of the Working Group “Video Games and Gaming: Towards a Trans-Medial Analysis.”  The co-written paper they shared with other academics and practitioners interested in the transdisciplinarity of gaming and theater was “A Study of The End: Using Game Mechanics to Create Customized Trans-Media Narrative.” In it, they use The End as a case study for the mechanics and dynamics that Swim Pony is interested in using gaming and theater’s intersectionality to reap the greatest benefits from.
