Guest: Tracy Fullerton, “Walden” Game Designer, Professor and Chair of the Interactive Media and Game Division, USC School of Cinematic Arts Since noise polution is basically impossible to escape even in the most remote corners of our national parks, why not experience quiet solitude digitally, instead? A new video game offers a chance to recreate Henry David Thoreau’s time spent on a remote pond in Massachusetts. “Living deliberately,” he called it. Like Thoreau’s book, the game is called Walden.
