Programme détaillé
Du 5 au 9 janvier prochain, l'Enjmin et NX Publishing organisent une
semaine de conférences sur le jeu video. Ces interventions auront lieu en live à
Angoulême ou en visio aux Etats-Unis et seront retransmises à la Cité des
Sciences et de l'Industrie, en partenariat avec le CNC.
Rencontre avec les acteurs majeurs de l'industrie du jeu vidéo
Organisés autour d'une dizaine de conférences (en live et en visio), ces ateliers
ont pour objectif principal de permettre la rencontre entre les étudiants et les
professionnels de l'industrie du jeu video en France et à l'international. Ces
moments privilégies d'échange donnent une occasion unique aux futurs
professionnels de s'enrichir des expériences de personnes clés du milieu
industriel et créatif du jeu vidéo. En effet, les intervenants traitent non seulement
de questions techniques et créatives précises mais évoquent également leurs
parcours respectifs, leurs visions du métier et engagent une réflexion sur les
enjeux et les évolutions de ce secteur d'activité.

Sujet : "Les moteurs psychiques des jeux video"
1. Nous recherchons les images parce que nous sommes chacun la
première machine à fabriquer des images à laquelle nous ayons eu
affaire.
2. Nous y désirons deux choses : Y être immergé comme dans un rêve
: ce sont les pouvoirs d'enveloppement des images ; et en rester le
maître : ce sont les pouvoirs de transformation des images. Les
premiers sont des pouvoirs d'illusion, les seconds des pouvoirs de
maîtrise. Les deux sont absolument complémentaires.
3. Les jeux vidéo ont pour originalité de mettre en jeu avec une intensité extrême ces deux
caractéristiques, en associant en proportion variable deux types d'interactions : sensori
motrices d'un cote, émotionnelles et narratives de l'autre.
Bio :
Serge Tisseron s'est fait connaître par ses travaux originaux sur les secrets de famille, nos
relations aux images et les liens que nous entretenons avec les objets, notamment les
nouvelles technologies. Son langage simple et clair a fait de plusieurs de ses ouvrages des
best-sellers, notamment Tintin chez le psychanalyste (1985) et Secrets de famille, mode
d'emploi (1996). Il a publié une trentaine d'ouvrages personnels et participé à une
cinquantaine d'ouvrages collectifs. Ses livres sont traduits dans douze langues. Serge
Tisseron est également scénariste et dessinateur de bandes dessinées (cinq albums parus
ce jour, Ed. Calmann-Levy, Réédition Marabout poche).

Subject : "The Ludic Century: In the Future, Everyone will be a Game
Designer"
In this wide-ranging and far-reaching talk, Eric will build on his fifteen
years of experience as a game designer to talk about the wider
relevance of games to the culture at large. What are games? What is
game design? And in what ways is our culture changing to become
more game-centric? The importance of thinking in terms of complex
systems, playful technologies, and the world as a designed construction
are bringing about new ways of making meaning, and demanding new kinds of literacies for
understanding these meanings. In a talk that will include a sneak peek at his next major
unreleased game title, Eric will provide a provocative glimpse into a very playful future.
Bio :
Eric Zimmerman has been working in the game industry for fifteen years. He is the cofounder and Chief Design Officer of Gamelab, an independent game development company

Subject : "Roll over Beethoven: understanding the transition from hardcore
to casual games."
In 1956, Chuck Berry ended his hit song with the following verse: "Roll over
Beethoven and dig these rhythm and blues". As the anecdote goes, Chuck
and his sister Lucy were constantly battling over their living room high-tech
appliance: their piano. Lucy insisted on playing classical music while Chuck
had a thing for modern popular music. As a consequence of this, Chuck
wrote "Roll over Beethoven" both as a joke to his sister - so she would
leave him access to the piano - but also as a hymn to the 20th century's cultural shift from
classical to pop music. We are currently witnessing a similar moment in the realm of
videogames, between the so-called "hardcore" and "casual" ways of playing. Hardcore
gamers, raised with the values set by 1970's California geeks are watching in amazement
how the hordes of regular people are taking videogames to a mainstream level. Is this the
end of gaming as we know it? How are these two ways of playing going to coexist? What are
the cultural and technological reasons that explain this current shift in gaming? Is it the first
time that this happened in history? And, more importantly, how does this affect the future of
gaming? This talk will address these and other questions not by simply exploring the more 40
years of existence of videogames but also within the context of thousands of years of
traditional, unplugged games and toys.
