What do we mean by the critical in critical game design? And what is pressing about critical game design given our current social, cultural, and political context? A surge of scholarship has developed around the topic of Critical Game Design as researchers, developers, and artists seek to create socially conscious and transformative games and digital media. However, as Shaowen and Jeffrey Bardzell provoke in “What is ‘Critical’ about Critical Design,” the critical qualities of Critical Design are often underexplored both in theory and in research practice. This panel brings together established and emerging scholars in the field to discuss all aspects of critical game design, across theory, practice, pedagogy and research.
