Game Research attempts to bring together knowledge on computer games from the areas of art, business, and science. Traditionally such cross-communication has been sparse to the detriment of all involved.

On this site we present short introductions to important areas and provide access to a database of links and references to literature. This database is kept up-to-date with the help of users on this site, who are strongly encouraged to submit references. User-added references are immediately added to the database. We do, however, reserve the right to delete irrelevant entries.

We hope you will find the site helpful. If something is bothering you we are very open to suggestions.

The original contents of this site were translated from the previous, Danish language version found at www.autofire.dk.

Use of Game Research and all resources found here is entirely free in accordance with common copyright. The editors can, however, also be employed to conduct specifically tailored research within our fields of expertise.

Should you wish to reproduce any of our material in any form you’ll need our written permision.
