About this book

The book is dedicated to a compilation of diverse and creative landscapes which occur in games. Being part of a game setting, these landscapes trigger social construction processes in specific ways. A selection of twenty-four research articles addresses the social constructions of landscapes represented in analogue, digital and hybrid game formats as well as their theoretical framing and future perspectives.
