Well-Played: A Sense of Wonder through Planes of Reality: Playing Gorogoa

With this presentation, I will engage in a close reading of the experience of playing Gorogoa, a video game being independently developed by Jason Roberts. It's a game where the world is the puzzle that you solve, so I'm going to approach the experience from the perspective of how it encourages exploring layered planes of reality.  Gorogoa is a work in progress, with a playable demo and  a targeted release date of late 2013 / early 2014. As such, I will be able to play through the entire demo live to help illustrate and interpret how the game enables players to learn its mechanics, developing a literacy and mastery of the gameplay experience, and creating a sense of wonder.
