Anyone who’s read (or attempted to read) James Joyce’s Ulysses knows that it is a herculean undertaking. The book, considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, is dense with references and made-up words. Goodreads, a social media platform of sorts for bookworms, ranks it as the No. 1 most difficult novel to read.
Enter Joycestick, a virtual reality game that presents the text in a whole new way.
Matthew Harty, CIS/SSH’18, who played a key role in designing the game, described the goal of the project as “creating a better way for people to get their feet wet with Ulysses, as well as a way for people who know Ulysses to deepen their understanding of it.”
