Congratulations to Will Partin, who has been shortlisted for the New York Videogame Critics’ Circle’s 1st Annual Games Journalism Award for his essay in The Atlantic, “When Prison is a Game.” In their citation of his work, the critics say “What a game actually purports to be about is only one narrow band in the spectrum of its own meaning. Partin’s sprawling review of Prison Architect refuses to restrict itself to the former, and—as is proving typical for his criticism—instead spreads out to interpret in expert fashion the various subtexts, symbols, and histories coded into a little game about incarceration.” The winner will be announced on the evening of February 9th, 2016 as part of the 5th Annual New York Game Awards which will be held at Villain in Brooklyn, NY.
