Dear colleagues,

We’re proud to announce that G|A|M|E n. 5/2016 has been published and is
available (open access) at

Can video game design be compared to more formalized practices of
scientific research or speculation within game studies? And, by virtue of
an intellectual leap that in itself calls for discussion, can video games
be considered as an efficient vehicle for the presentation of certain kinds
of knowledge, in the same way in which papers, conference presentations,
and books are?

In an experimental format for academic publishing, G|A|M|E n. 5/2016
contains both articles and playable artifacts that address these themes.

The editors of G|A|M|E n.5/2016
Giovanni Caruso, Riccardo Fassone, Gabriele Ferri, Stefano Gualeni, Mauro
