1/27/2014 - Trans-Media Worlds

Last Monday, we held our first meeting of the semester. We got a chance to meet all of the new members and talk about all of the events that we have planned.

Livio also gave a talk about Transmedia Worlds, which are basically fictional worlds that are represented by multiple types of media, such as film, novels, and of course, games. The talk focused on three examples: Star Wars, Pokémon, and Hot Wheels Acceleracers. The first two examples were some of the most successful worlds of recent years, while the third one is an example of a failed attempt to make a successful transmedia world.

As usual, we recorded the meeting, but we are still editing the video. Check back here for the recording once it has been uploaded.
