In this episode, we discuss what it means to leave videogames through the context of a close reading of Deirdra "Squinky" Kiai's Ruin Jam game, Quing's Quest (http://itch.io/jam/ruinjam2014/rate/11090).
Using that analysis as a springboard, we discuss the complexity of the process of "leaving games" and dissect the idea of videogames as a particular kind of cultural space, both in terms of community and industry. We talk about non-participation in industry procedure and we ask if and how it is possible to uproot from that space while still curating and building alternative games and games discourse.
