"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."
- Daniel Floyd and James Portnow

Extended Call for Papers:

The Postgraduate Journal for Interdisciplinary Research extends its deadline for submissions around the theme of 'Virus':
How do different spheres understand the virus, the viral, the virulent? Do we stray too far from the precision of a scientific definition in our familiar use of the virus? What does it say about our conception of humanity and its endeavours that we find such a compelling and pervasive model in the virus? And what do the different figurings of the viral across disciplines have to tell one another?
