I'd like to call your attention to a new Masters programme in Digital Games 
Theory and Design that we have developed at Brunel University, London, UK. The 
programme will begin in early October 2006 and we are now seeking applications 
from prospective students.
best wishes

This innovative new programme enables students to engage in, and experiment 
with, practical game design. We explore a range of theories and concepts with 
which to analyse the values implicit within games and go back to 'basics' by 
considering what it is that makes for 'good' game play. Different types of 
games are explored with the aim of developing designs that are both innovative 
and that might appeal beyond the current core markets for digital games.You 
will be taught by a team of experienced games researchers, some of whom have 
played a pioneering role in making game studies a new academic discipline. The 
programme is led by Tanya Krzywinska, Vice President of Digital Games Research 
Association and co-author of Tomb Raiders and Space Invaders: Videogames Forms 
and Meanings (IB Tauris, 2006) and co-editor of ScreenPlay: 
Cinema/Videogames/Interfaces (Wallflower, 2002) and the programme is also 
taught by Steve Jackson, acclaimed author of interactive fictions, founder of 
GamesWorkshop and board member of Lionhead Studios.
