Booklife: On Writing and Gaming

The more games I play, the more I come to understand how a great game’s mechanics and metaphor work together to generate really satisfying experiences for players. In turn, that’s helped me hone my instincts as a writer, understanding how structure and setting work together to create great stories…

Along with a number of other contributors to Green Ronin’s FAMILY GAMES: THE 100 BEST, I was interviewed by one of the editors for Jeff Vandermeer’s great site Booklife who wanted to talk about writing and game design.

My interview was posted today, and you can check it out here to see me talk about what writers can learn about game design and give a shoutout to some of my favorite recent storygames.

    Fantastic interview, Seth! I’m stealing some of it to use in a creative writing unit I’m teaching.
