Critical Lab

>researching_ games_

The Critical Lab has the mission to give students a platform to analyse and discuss games while also giving a glimpse of of how it can be done properly.

From investigating sexist mechanics to using psychoanalysis theory to interpret complex narratives, we do not shy away to use the methods we learn here to engage with the games we love and hate.


We are streaming our sessions onThursdays every second week via Twitch!


Shorter edits of our lab sessions and extra content are provided on Youtube.
