23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Even though a separate category of documentary games is not theoretically defi ned, many games refer to reality, use real stories, data and situations or portray the workings of social institutions and structures. These are the games the game zone has been following for four years. Serious games, simulations, adventure games, RPG – we explore the ways diff erent genres highlight serious topics: for instance the life in a totalitarian society, the construction of a sustainable environment, the sources and spreading of false news. There is also a “slow game”, a game that can be played only once, visually elaborate and attractive games or games ingeniously using music. Most of them are short and can be fi nished in several minutes or in four hours so that visitors can have a go at several games. The Game Zone was supported by Asus, Genesis, X-Gamer and X-Diablo and can be found on the ground floor of the Horácké Theater.
