Play the Future
The visions of the future appearing in video games are more and more complex and thought-provoking.
We’ll take a look at three Polish projects: Liberated - a cyberpunk dystopia, The Invincible - a game based on Stanisław Lem’s novel of the same name, and Gamedec - a story about a detective investigating crimes in virtual worlds.
Then, we’ll have a discussion with Prof. Paweł Frelik, a science fiction and video game researcher. We’ll talk about the visions of the future found in games and reflect on the extent to which they are accurate or flawed.
