One thought on “The Pleasures of Adaptation in Ryan North’s “To Be Or Not To Be””

  1. I gave a paper at CGSA 2016 on the subject of differing approaches to adapting existing franchises–Marvel, Star Wars, and this book–into the CYOA format. Waldron’s essay was immensely helpful in putting that paper together. I cited it during the presentation, but given that that was only heard by the two dozen or so people in the room, I thought I’d say for the record here as well for the whole internet to hear that this is a very useful article in exploring the tension of adapting existing narratives to gamic structures.
