GAM3R 7H30RY 1.1 is a networked book. The Institute for the Future of the Book, together with McKenzie Wark, created this project to investigate new approaches to writing in the networked environment, and to see what happens when authors and readers are brought into conversation over an evolving text. GAM3R 7H30RY 1.1  – the book and the web site – is a work in progress. We expect it to change over time.
How exactly it changes is up to you. The feedback you give, the conversations you join, the discussions you start elsewhere on the web and out in the world – all could have an impact on subsequent stages of this book, or at least help to shape its larger context. Our hunch is that a good conversation generated here will result in a better book.

McKenzie Wark:

“Together with the Institute for the Future of the Book, I created this website as a way to think to about games. Games, as in computer games, are the subject of my next book, GAM3R 7H30RY. I am interested in two questions.”

1. can we explore games as allegories for the world we live in?
2. can there be a critical theory of games?

“I thought it would be interesting to share the book in its draft state to see if these questions are something other people might have ideas on or might want to pursue”
