Abstract: First Person. New Media as Story, Performance, and Game is a collection of essays by new media practitioners and theorists. Starting out from the question whether computer games can be regarded as a form of 'electronic literature,' the book's contributors address different aspects of digital games and their media context.
Description: "First Person makes an invaluable contribution to the current discussion surrounding new media narratives, computer games, and the performative ties that bind them. The anthology brings together major players in the field who discuss their ideas in the appropriately open-ended format of statements and responses, all of which shed light on the aesthetic and social implications of our new experiences of stories." Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art
