Black Mirror is one of the seminal shows of our generation, holding up a mirror to the negative impact of digital technology on an increasingly dystopian society. Brian's chapter analyses the episode “Playtest” with particular attention being paid to the ways in which digital games embody contemporary socio-economic realities of western life. 

The book is scheduled to be published in November but anyone interested in an early copy of the chapter can contact Dr Brian McCauley via his email
