Have you played video games like The Talos Principle, Bioshock, Zombi, or the Prince of Persia? Do you know the difference between ludology (the critical study of gaming) and narratology (the critical study of narrative structure) and how they affect our perception? This fun, innovative course makes a connection between Bible and biblical traditions and contemporary video games. If you’ve ever ‘died’ in a game – and then been resurrected to play another day – this 1-week summer course of the Tilburg University will show you how the Jewish-Christian tradition is relevant to understanding today’s world of gaming. The course is given by Archibald van Wieringen and myself.
