On the Ideal of the "Notgame"

This week for Beta Fish I offer my thoughts on so-called "notgames," game difficulty, ludo-literacy, non-gamers, storytelling, the future of games, and more. Lots of theory and shit! Read it all here.

Mention on Indie Game Hunt

     Thanks again to Paul Hack of IndependentGaming.net for featuring Waker on Indie Game Hunt! It's really, really weird for me to see strangers on the internet get excited about my creative work - really not at all used to it - but it's greatly appreciated nonetheless  Stuff like this motivates me more than anything to work on the project and make it the best that it can be - I'll try my best to meet expectations!

1000 hits

I mean, in the grand scheme of the internet, 1000 pageviews is small fry, but damn it, it's something, and I really appreciate it. Thanks for reading this blog, and for reading my column on Beta Fish you've been doing that too.

I will write something soon. In the meantime, here's a Ze Frank video of True Facts about the Baby Echidna.

Also, there have been 50 posts previous to this one. Coincidence?

On Mad Father and Protagonists in Games

Here's a review I wrote for Beta Fish on the quite good freeware indie horror adventure game Mad Father that also talks about the problem that having a player avatar as the main character poses for storytelling in games. Enjoy!
