Abstract: The main ambition of the book is to sketch the existential aesthetics that explore the situatedness of the individual towards a single player digital game with avatar. The book focuses on games falling within the category of independent or art games, and builds upon an assumption drawn from existentialism; where the individual facing the world is the central philosophical concern. In this theoretical horizon, a situation can become meaningful only from the point of view of the particular being.
Description: The monograph was funded by the research grant awarded by the Polish National Science Centre, decision number DEC-2013/09/D/HS1/00424.
