Calling all gamers! My friend Dr. Angelica Ortiz de Gortari, who coined the term Game Transfer Phenomena is seeking help with her research. This is a great opportunity for you to share you gaming experiences with other players; learn more about GTP (something all avid players should be aware of) and possibly score an Amazon gift card or a signed copy of my latest book, Planet Alt-Sete-Nine. Check out her post below and click the link to take the survey.
Contribute to the science of video games. Participate in our studies.
The aim of these studies is to understand people’s responses to the exposure to digital media to inform and demystify spontaneous sensory perceptions, cognition and behaviours experienced after playing video games, so-called Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP).
The coronavirus outbreak has imposed new rules on people’s lives. A large number of the world’s population is currently or have been limited to environmental stimuli, social contact and physical movement while being highly exposed to media content.
Who can participate in the studies?
- 18 years old or older
- Playing video games during the last 6 months.
What are the benefits of your participation?
- You can win a £20 Amazon GiftCard or a signed copy of the sci-fi book "Planet Alt-Sete-Nine: The Lost Princess" By B.J Neblett about video games and Game Transfer Phenomena.
- You will contribute to understanding the relation between playing video games, experiencing Game Transfer Phenomena and coping with stressors during exceptional circumstances.
This is going to be short and to the point. Last time I made a passing reference to my 'bobble head'. This simple, off the wall mention sparked a host of email requests ranging from, "What bobble head," to "Let's see the bobble head," to "What are you talking about?" Well, one of my ambitions in life has always been to have my own bobble head image. I know, my goals are sad... anyway... A couple of Christmases ago, a girlfriend of mine fulfilled my desire with a very cool and unexpected gift. Then, about a month ago, as my alter ego sat nodding up at my from my desk, I realized that he represents only one part of my complex life. So, calling on my modeling and origami skills, with help from a couple of computer programs, I fashioned perfectly scaled copies of my published novels. (I'm still working on Beyond The Hedge and Wouldn't It Be Funny If...) Make sure you get your full size copies of Planet Alt-Sete-Nine, Elysian Dreams, and Ice Cream Camelot from your favorite book seller or Amazon! (I know, shameless self promotion).
Anyway, for all of you who requested, and the rest of you who probably are wondering, "Why the heck am I reading this?" here he is! Drum roll please!
Now I'm wanting one of these guys of me in my softball attire!
