Epiphany

I had this amazing breakthrough while reading Dogs in the Vineyard this week—the characters are basically Mormons. Let’s see Deadlands or Coyote Trail match that sort of diversity!

We’ve really broken through the “glass ceiling” as far as blogs go—I think I’m ready to start linking to some of the more academically credible gaming blogs out there and get some more traffic. If anyone is interested in trading links, let me know! I’ll have to administer an ideology test, but it should be easy, so long as you are well-read and have a complete working knowledge of all the academic papers to come out of the Forge, even the ones that contradict the previous ones. Of course, you also need to have a very good grasp of theories of Professor Kory Curtis, but according to him, most of you should already be aware of his body of work.

Cornell, I've just found your site and I have been reading with great interest. You and your professor-friend obviously have a lot to teach all of us.

I have a gaming blog, too, and I'd love to trade links with you. It's called Ludanta Retero, which is all in Esperanto. Is using a universal language profound enough for a gaming blog title? I'd love to hear your opinion.

I think I'm probably a Pseudo-Correctist in the professor's terminologies. My new game deals with social issues and stuff, but you can still blow up spaceships and fight aliens and stuff, so I'm not quite there yet.

Anyway, looking forward to hearing from you!

Joshua: I would be pleased to trade links with you. Like Esperanto, Indie Gaming is an increasingly popular trend that will soon encircle the globe. However, your blog is displaying in English! Is this some unforseen error on your part? Kindly let me know and we may efface a swap soon thereafter.

I understand very well where you're at in regards to game design. It sounds like as soon as you purge some of the more entertaining elements from your game, you'll be ready to move up to the "big leagues", to use a football analogy. Take heart--remember, Psuedo Correctionist is only one step from Correctionist!

I recently had a lot of fun with SPULTURATORAH. (That's a link to the alpha/playtest version; I think a new version with higher production values and slick art is in the works) But now I'm worried because it is clearly grounded in the G/N/S division, which means it shouldn't be fun. Am I playing Wrongist? Is it (gasp) a Bankruptist game? Help me before I go too far down the wrong path and end up irreversibly brain-damaged!

Selene: Goodness--let me talk it over with the professor and try to get back to you. Offhand, I'd like to say you've fallen into the Pseudo-Correctionist trap, but its an easy mistake for well-meaning progressive, almost-enlightened gamers to make. It seems to me all you need to do to make the jump to correctionist is to simply stop having so much fun. Try to make the game more like work and the important academic and social endeavor I know you WANT it to be, deep down, and I think you'll find you're on the right track.

Thanks to everyone for their comments so far! It's really gratifying to see how far The Movement has pervaded gaming, and how many of you who aren't quite up to where you need to be yet want to get there. Remember, you can also reach me via my email, which is linked in my profile, if you have longer, more in-depth questions.

Jes, retero anglas, sed mi ne cogas popoloj esperantajs sufichej por 100% esperanto. Silimas ludoj! Onta tago, onta tago.

Understood. I will be happy to swap links, my far-seeing compatriot in this gaming revolution. Or shall I say "revolucio"?

Can you please link Kory Curtis' theories?

Alas, Professor Curtis' online link to his vast repetoire of gaming intellectual endeavors is down. Something about the Amiga computer they're hosted on having broken. I will be dispensing his vast widsom and certitudes secondhand from this site. however, so if you have a specific point, I'd be happy to help you evolve your gaming.
