Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From Madden NFL 2007 to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, videogames are firmly
enmeshed in modern culture. Acknowledging the increasing cultural impact of this
rapidly changing industry, Videogames and Art is one of the first books devoted
to the study of videogame art, featuring in-depth essays that offer an
unparalleled overview of the field. The distinguished contributors range broadly
over this vast intellectual terrain, positioning videogame art as a crucial
interdisciplinary mix of digital technologies and the traditions of pictorial
art. They examine machinima and game console artwork, politically oriented
videogame art, and the production of digital art; they also interview prominent
videogame artists about their work. Rounding out Videogames and Art is a
critique of the commercial videogame industry comprising several critical essays
on the current quality and originality of videogames. An essential volume for
our digital age, Videogames and Art will be a fascinating read for players,
fans, skeptics, and scholars alike.
