Abstract

In the object universe of technology, game interface design began as an offshoot of video game development. It remained far removed from the constellations of design research, evolving on its own. Even in the flourishing field of game studies, key design aspects are ignored or belittled, just as video games are by the design study community, being, for them, a mere grain of sand on the beach of design culture. To bridge this gap, video game interface design will be examined here from a designerly techno-historical perspective.
