“Through its impressively vast range of theories and methodologies, this collection promises to make a significant contribution to the ecocritical study of games.”
– Marco Caracciolo, author of Contemporary Fiction and Climate Uncertainty: Narrating Unstable Futures
“Over a decade since the ‘material turn’ in game studies consolidated and reaffirmed the criticality of attention on the stuff games are made from, the essays in Ecogames repeat the process for question of games’ entanglement with the accelerating climate crisis. The collection is an essential intervention, demonstrating that games’ sustainability—along myriad dimensions: climatic, cultural, ecological—can no longer be regarded a niche concern in game studies, and must be engaged with by all serious scholars today. Ecogames represents the delivery of a long overdue resource for newcomers to the field, enabling students and faculty alike to get across current debates and research trajectories, and will be cited for years to come as the climate continues to deteriorate and games are forced to reckon with their role in it.”
– Benjamin Abraham, author of Digital Games After Climate Change, and founder of AfterClimate
"Ecogames provides a pluralistic view of play set against the climate crisis. This is an invaluable volume for thinking, doing and playing in the Anthropocene."
– Darshana Jayemanne, Senior Lecturer in Art, Media, and Games at Abertay University, UK
