« Profile Ludique is a francophone university podcast whose mission is to paint a detailed portrait of an emerging and controversial video game genre: the walking simulator. Each episode explores a singular issue through analyzes of iconic walking simulators while relying on scientific texts from studies of video games or cinema, literary theories, art history or philosophy.
The space of reflection created by this podcast is structured around two objectives. On the one hand, analyze in depth the aesthetic and experiential characteristics that define this new genre. On the other hand, make a mapping of cultural series, formal kinship ties and artistic hybridizations that the walking simulator has with other genres of video and media. » [Link]
