Arthouse Games
News: Sex, Lies, and Video Games
by jcr13Monday, December 4, 2006 [6:00 pm] interactive drama Facade was featured in a full-length article in the November 2006 issue of The Atlantic Monthly. This was the first profile of video game designers ever to grace the pages of The Atlantic (which was founded by Emerson, Longfellow, and friends in 1857).

The article also covers Will Wright's project Spore and discusses video games as art. "What if a computer program combined the action and graphics of a video game with the emotional power of great art?"

Good question.
