Slam City Oracles (unreleased, PC and Mac) is a dizzying fantasia of jumping, snacking, and slamming. A pair of teenage girls marauds through a riot grrrl-tinged universe of snacks by slamming into anything and everything in a fevered pitch. Charles Pratt is a curator, scholar, and game designer. His podcast, Another Castle, and blog, GameDesignAdvance, are seminal resources in the burgeoning game criticism field. He was the founding curator of No Quarter, NYU Game Center’s annual game exhibition.
