"In Avant-garde Videogames, Schrank exhibits us how the state of the art of video games and the state-of-the-art of artwork will be shaped jointly into shears that lower holes into our perceptions of fact. This far-ranging exam of the connection among video games, know-how, tradition, and artwork serves as a very good advisor to the prior, current, and way forward for avant-garde games."—Jesse Schell, CEO, Schell video games; amazing Professor of leisure know-how, Carnegie Mellon
