of writing computer games. Students discover how to analyse Games

Discourse and are introduced to Wittgensteinian definitions of

language-games as a tool for understanding and critiquing formal

descriptions of language, thought and the process of story creation and

revelation. Students are given a heuristic for investigation that results

in their discovery of a complicated network of similarities,

overlapping and criss-crossings within the structure of an essentially

hypertextualised story. The final objective is that students learn how a

game may resemble a simulation that tries to model a phenomenon by

isolating the essential features of that phenomenon and plays them out

in a way that does not affect the phenomenon and ultimately the

students are required to produce their own written phenomenon.
