IULM Flow is an international project entirely in English, articulated in a series of talks, masterclasses and a summer school. The next installment, Cyberpunk 2077, beyond gameplay, features a conversation between Pierluigi Sacco and Pietro Polsinelli. The event will take place Wednesday 9th December at 4 PM, live on IULM's YouTube channel.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open world adventure set in Night City, an American megacity obsessed with power, fashion and human augmentation. In addition to being one of the most awaited games ever, so much that the latest trailer has registered over 21 million views, Cyberpunk 2077 perfectly summarizes the cyberpunk philosophy and sensitivity born at the turn of the 1980s as a concentrate of collectivism egocentric generated by a techno-globalized future that fights in a “disorganized” way against the political-moral structures of the time: cosmetic surgery, music, shocking colors, exotic weapons, multiculturalism, crime and obsession with the digital matrix.After a long series of postponements, the video game will finally see the light on Thursday 10 December 2020. In the meantime, we will try to go deeper into this world in order to learn more about this socio-digital universe with the help of Pietro Polsinelli, game designer and developer who in the last twenty years has developed a lot of web applications and video games, as well as having written a book, created a blog, a youtube channel and a podcast in which he presents his creations and comments on what happens in the gaming world.
Pietro Polsinelli is a game designer and developer, mostly working on applied games. He also teaches GAME WRITING in the Master of Arts in Game Design at IULM UNiversity. In the last twenty years, Pietro developed several web applications and video games, using a variety of languages, tools, and platforms (Java, C#, web apps, Unity3d) He co-authored a book on applied games in Italian, and is currently writing a book on applied games in English titled Explaining With Games.
