Remediated GTA & Tomb Raider

Original GTA- Player chooses one of the characters to do different tasks and move up in organised crime rankings. Usual tasks that are asked include assassinating people, stealing things, and other criminal activities

Remediated version- Lara Croft (of Tomb Raider) works to counteract all of the criminal activity caused by the men of GTA and helps to protect the prostitutes. She does this all with legal actions because she works for the government. Her physical portrayal will not be as provocative as the original  Croft, to avoid the sexualization of her character. Some of her experiences will include:

  • defending citizens
  • getting to the person the GTA characters plan on assassinating before its too late
  • Retrieving stolen merchandise
  • Overall point of game is to convict the GTA criminals

This remediation is based on the changing of interface design and social interaction and creating a more realistic female role model in the gaming world.

Art Modifications

An art modification is a remediation of interactive software. One example is the PC game, “The Nameless Mod”, which modifies “Deus Ex” and expands on its world, making the game play last longer.

Modifications: interface design - visual effects were improved.

Both are still playable today.

Reproduction and Remediation

Reproduction is the duplication of material to remake something into something new. 

Remediation is making small changes to improve something already in existence.
