Week 38, 2012
Sorry I have been so silent in the last weeks. There are good reasons for it. For example: I went to a wedding from a dear friend of mine in Nice, then I recorded a lecture in WWEDU that is in Wels, Austria (I think I post something about it); then visited Gøvik University College in Norway; participated at the CIMUSET; and believe it or not my family and very special people were here, surrounding me for my doctoral defence. Honestly, I had been learning A LOT in the last weeks and enjoying even more! =) So, in brief I have to write much to catch up.
However, the aim of this post is to share a game, which I honestly want to try: Kinected Stories: The Interactive Storybook Series.
One thing I am very curious about in this game is the experience of using my imagination when I read a book and link it to the imagination of the creators of the game. When, we read a book, as we know, we use our imagination a lot, e.g., creating voices, describing characters, that this imaginative effort help us to immerse in the story. For one reason, it is known that first read the book and later watch the movie. At least in most of the cases, this is the flow to follow.
So, the video advice to play first and later read the book does not convince me 100% yet. Nevertheless, I should understand it is a promotional video 😉
In any case, for sure I want to try the game!!!!! =) and when time comes, meet the developers too 😉
Getting vision for the future: One day, I think I will expand this playing curiosities even more….. getting ready for it!
