The End is Nigh! Episode 4: The Future of Gaming

Howdy folks,

Here is the fourth and final episode of the Press stART podcast.

In this episode, we have a retrospective look at our previous episodes, and discuss the future of gaming as an art form and predict where the individual aspects of storytelling, the experience, and aesthetics may go.

That's it from us (for now!). We hope you enjoyed listening to our show as much as we enjoyed creating it. We learned a hell'uva lot about the medium of podcasting. We intent to continue our show in a more personal manner come Summer 2013, so stay tuned for more from myself and the guys!

Episode 2: The Experience of Gaming

Dear Readers/Listeners,


We hope you enjoyed Episode 1, so here's our follow-up Episode 2 of Press stART!

In this episode we focus on the experience of gaming, and compare it to other experiences of art. We speak a lot about mechanics, the player perspective, and the player motivation. The genre, style, and story of gaming copper-fasten the experience of gaming, rendering it an effective and emotive art form.

Again, please feel free to let us know what you think - agree, disagree, love, or hate us in the comment selection below.

Aaaaand we're up!

Dear Readers/Listeners,


Welcome to Press StART, a podcast made for a 2nd Year project for CT231 Professional Skills at NUIGalway, Ireland.

Over the course of the next 4 episodes, we aim to influence and entertain Undergraduates in IT persuing Games Design, as well as influencing those who are not to appreciate and potentially work with the medium. We also hope to reach out to Artists of a graphical, musical, and literary type.

We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to listen to us talk about something we are passionate about, and we hope our passion can be passed on to you.



Stay tuned for more from myself and the crew,
