Game: Required

The Path. Tale of Tales, 2009. <> or Steam. $10.00 Windows or Mac.

Anyone serious about DH will be interested in these but they are not required for the course.

Phillips, Tom. A Humument: A Treated Victorian Novel. Paper on Amazon, but also available as an iPad app.

Saporta, Marc. Composition No.1. 1962, 2011. Available from the publisher at <> Also available as an iPad app.

White, Alex. The Elements of Graphic Design. 2002; 2nd ed. 2011. I prefer the first edition.

Like The Path, these are slow moving, narrative-based games that skirt the digital edge of literature. Lots of walking. No shooting or puzzles.

Dear Esther. The Chinese Room, 2008, 2010. $10.00 Windows or Mac.

BIENTÔT L'ÉTÉ. Tale of Tales, 2012. <> or Steam. $10.00. Windows or Mac.
