REMINDER: No class 11/20!
You all have until the last class (December 11th) to turn in your final version. Since you are all doing a revision of this paper instead of a second essay, be aware that this version will count as 60% of your final grade! So do the best job you can! I am happy to take a second look at your essay before you turn in your final one, but I MUST receive these second drafts by SUNDAY, December 2nd (so I have time to respond with comments and give back to you the next class). A second draft is not required, but highly recommended for those who did not receive a passing grade on the first draft.
For next week, please read (handout given in class):
* Wardrip-Fruin, N. and Harrigan, P. (2004) First Person: New Media as Story, Performance, and Game. Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press.
Cyberdrama, p. 1
Murray, Janet. From Game-Story to Cyberdrama, 1-10.
Response by Bryan Loyall, p. 1-9 (not available online).
* be prepared to discuss in class; no blog response necessary for this reading (above), but if you are seeking some extra credit, then feel free to blog.
