Lost Astronaut Games is a research network and creative collective of game designers, games studies scholars, and creative practitioners who work with games and/or play.
We are especially interested in games that are in some sense avant-garde, experimental, utopian, and/or politically radical. We are especially interested in critical play, ‘serious’ games, experiential learning, gamification (in a broad sense), games as care, rituals, fictional games, ambient literature, generative aesthetics, performance writing, locative media, data visualisation, games that create games, and games that might not even be games. We are interested in games that are analogue, digital, both, or neither.
We are always look for opportunities to collaborate. Whether you have a project in mind, or would just like to hear more about what we do, say hello.
