Abstract: Professional philosophy is often imagined as the realm of musty rooms full of Delphic books and stuffy university professors in tweed jackets or the future unemployed. Modern philosophy is a technocrat's game, with work in the field mostly done by researchers publishing in highly technical, peer-reviewed journals in specialised niches. The field of digital games is one of these niches, coming into its own as fertile ground for philosophy-and the Institute of Digital Games (lOG, University of Malta) is keen to explore.
