Theorising film-to-game adaptation

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper investigates the intersection of ludic and cinematic forms and theorises how games are adapted from films in the case of movie-licenced games. It proposes a series of film-to-game adaptation models which describe the practice of this type of adaptation based on structuralist approaches to adaptation theory, aesthetic game studies, and scholarship on transmedia storytelling.
