From the Braid journal: Jason Rohrer (Passage, Gravitation) will be presenting a speech at NYU on April 11th 2008. The event is taking place on the 9th floor of Tisch Hall, in the lobby. The talk is titled 'art games' and 'game mechanics as metaphor'. Videos will be posted shortly after the seminar.

"In his lecture "The Game Design of Art," Jason Rohrer will present his observations from the front lines of the "games as art" debate. The fundamental question for Rohrer is not "Can games be art?", but instead, "How can we make art with our games?" Through comparison with film and critical analysis of several example artgames, the talk will explore one possible creative route: using game mechanics as metaphor." (source: Gaming Seminar)
