Abstract

This chapter, fully collaborative from inception to completion, was conceived as way of interrogating the critical aporia in current game studies around understanding gameplay pleasures and engagements. This was the first piece of published research attentive to issues around technological competence as well as 'story competence' in relation to children's engagement with a single storyworld that specifically considered these issues comparatively across three distinct platforms. Presentations of the work have provoked requests for further appearances at seminars and conferences (Playful Subjects 2005, MeCCSA January 2006, LearnIT 'Gameplay' symposium March 2006).
