Learning about Love from 'Cibele'

by G. Christopher Williams

15 February 2016

This week we take a look to see if Nina Freeman's Cibele can teach us something about romance in digital spaces.
 

Cibele is Nina Freeman’s autobiographical look at a first experience of love in an online space.

So, it seems somewhat fitting on the day after Valentine’s Day for the Moving Pixels podcast to consider what we can learn about romance and courtship through a video game.
  

This podcast is also available via Soundcloud.
