Luiz Claudio Silveira Duarte's Blog

 

I've recently received my master's degree in Design at UFPR, with a dissertation on distinctive features in strategic analysis of games.

Games and I go back a long way, at least since 1978. I'm interested in boardgames first, pen-and-paper role-playing games second, and digital games in a distant third place. For me, the social experience is of paramount importance in games, and the social interaction in digital games lends itself to a slew of problems.

Interested parties may find my personal site (in Portuguese and in English) at https://lcduarte.com. My Boardgamegeek profile can also be somewhat informative.

Scholars in Brasil are encouraged to keep their academic resume in a common database; mine can be found at http://lattes.cnpq.br/5582052937920160.

The study of games has sometimes been hampered by a lack of an airtight definition for "game". But perhaps such a definition isn't necessary. In a recent paper, I suggest that an approach first used in Linguistics can be very useful in Ludology.

Felipe, congratulations on a well-researched article and project. r n r nBut I can 't avoid a nitpick. You said: r n r n In Martian Dreams you travel in time back to the Victorian Era to join an expedition to Mars alongside Nicolas Tesla, Sigmund Freud and Warren Spector ...
