Role of computer games in national heritage

A talk linking computer games and culture and heritage is being held tomorrow at St James Cavalier in Valletta, Malta.

Part of Spazju Kreattiv’s programme, the talk will discuss the fundamental challenges and promises of computer game design and interactive media when created to assist the communication and preservation of digital heritage.

Delivered by Erik Champion, a professor at Curtin University, Australia, the lecture will examine serious games designed for history and heritage, definitions and challenges of ‘virtual heritage’ and possible technical and imaginative solutions. It will focus particularly on examples of built heritage.
