Abstract

In this paper I will discuss, by building on post-phenomenological philosophy of technology, existential ludology, and game studies, the conditions of possibility for discovery in computer games and present a sketch for a model of three ‘levels of discovery’ in computer games: discovery of that which we can do, of that which we need to do, and, of what we want to do.
