"Games can't tell their stories through disconnected segments of gameplay strung together by cut scenes. Games need to tell their story through the gameplay. Narrative should drip from every texture and be integrated into every facet of the world. It should come through in the menus and the interface and in every loading screen."

Debapriya Sarkar/ Rutgers University

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention. Sixteenth and seventeenth-century works, from Utopia to The Blazing World, engaged in acts of worldmaking by speculating on or inventing "possible worlds." This panel will examine the scope and limitations of these early modern possible worlds, and more generally, the condition of the "possible," which authors variously define through the terms "what may be," "what should be," or even "what if."
