Player diary. Finds it interesting to try out different roles. Good vs. Evil. Presentation of the game. Shows her son's slightly irritated reaction to her beginner's way of doing things. Cues to the underlying story and initiations to battles in the dialogues. Game literacy, media literacy (Kress, 2003). The screen has replaced the book to a large extent. Learning visual grammar, reading the screen. Understanding the interface and the affordances of objects on the screen. Mini-games that has elements of Caillois game categories.
