Abstract

Dimensionality is a term used to describe a number of aspects of games: the aspect ratio of a game’s imagery; the simulation of depth in two-dimensional images; the simplicity or complexity of a game’s narrative; and the decision space a player occupies during their play experience. Each of these forms of dimensionality enriches the play experience of games writ large, and video games in particular.
