This book charts the course of my attempts to bring meaning for
myself and for others about our world's energy resources. This
theme was playfully explored through the creation and production of
the interactive Forum Theatre piece "Spies in the Oilsands" and a
serious videogame called "The Pipeline Pinball Energy Thrill Ride
Game." The book also looks at the use of theatre as a model for new
ways of analyzing videogames and ultimately looks at both theatre
and games as ways of rehearsing the reality of our future. Part One
is a review of literary influences that relate to the theoretical
aims of the interconnected topics of interactive theatre, serious
games, and the social issue of world energy resources. Part Two
describes the creative process and production details of the case
studies, and Part Three features a synergy between theatre and
serious games that I have coined "Gamaturgy." Gamaturgy, in both
the creative and reflexive realms, as I describe them, is derived
from theatrical dramaturgy and provides new ideas for creating and
critically analyzing videogames.
