the world of Arts Games & Gaming

Here, for the benefit of all game enthusiasts everywhere, Electricka peeks through the window that looks out on the world of arts-related games and gaming.

about the world of games & gaming

What is a game? A game is an amusement or pastime, a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators.

By this definition, the world of games and gaming is huge, its scope mind-boggling.


the state of the art in arts gaming

By the term arts-related game, Electricka means a game with theme or content drawn from the arts.

Up to now, most games and gamer interest has been concentrated on subjects like war, crime, adventure, gambling, sports, or fantasy. Little attention has been paid to games whose subject matter is taken from the arts. For the most part, these are games unrelated to the arts.
