Dear AOIR,

I want to introduce you to a game, "Keys of a Game Space" that was just 
finished by Sébastien Genvo, a game designer, researcher and friend of 
mine. I think that this kind of games as a expressive digital medium 
spread through the internet are part of its influence or potential 
influence on society and thus relevant for internet research. It is 
available for free at:


In the game you play a young man who in order to go on with his life, 
build a family and become a father, needs to come to terms with his own 
childhood and the fact that his father left him and his mother and 
abused little girls. This game has given me one of the most intense 
experiences ever in connection to a game or any medium. I therefor 
recommend you to try it out and see for yourself (and then let us know 
how you solved the conflict in the end and how you felt about it).
