In this week’s bulletin, we discuss Minecraft’s Anishinaabe culture, Valheim, Frozenheim, an interview with Guthixian, the Six Days in Fallujah Saga, Stronghold: Warlords, some cool presentations on video games and history and an awesome mod for Crusader Kings III!
You might have missed the bulletin last week, so we’re back with a bulletin filled with two weeks worth of gaming news, mostly about Valheim (just kidding, but there is a lot)! In this week’s bulletin we discuss: Crusader Kings III, Valheim, Hades winning at the Gayming Awards, ink version 1.0, Pieter van den Heede on WW2 in video games, Temples & Tombs, Blood Feud, Techland’s bad management and Humankind’s modding tools!
This fourth article in a series of deep dives into alternative historical depictions of Africa and Colonialism in video games focuses on Ethiopia. In its quest for modernisation, Ethiopia looked east to Japan and the Meiji movement. The Historical Flavour mod for Victoria II simulates Ethiopia’s development throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century. How is the legacy of the Japaniser Movement represented?
In this week’s bulletin we discuss Valheim, pre-2000 Source Codes, a God of War Update, Imperator: Rome 2, politics and taboos in games, archiving the Atari Burial Ground, New World being delayed, Anno 1800 Docklands, a new Civ VI game mode and Hellish Quart!
This third article in a series of deep dives into alternative historical depictions of Africa and colonialism in video games focuses on post-colonialism. The end of formal colonialism marked the beginning of neocolonialism. A Victoria 2 mod set in the Cold War simulates this with a system of economic spheres of influence. How does it affect Africa?
In this week’s bulletin, we discuss Valheim, Lara Croft, Field of Glory 2: Medieval, Middle Ages in Modern Games, Potion Craft, Nebuchadnezzar, a Lecture on video games and History, Black Myth: Wukong, Archiving multi-platformed games and how pigs play video games!
