I’m going to be speaking at Google on Wednesday!
My talk is “Everyone Can Make Games Now”. It’s about the artistic revolution in video games due to the rise of game engines that are accessible to non-programmers. It includes a look at the technologies involved, the new developers using them, … Keep reading
In preparation for an upcoming talk, I’m searching for video games made by non-programmers (using a game creation tool such as Twine, Construct 2, Ren’Py, Scratch, GameMaker, etc). The game doesn’t have to be huge or complicated or commercial – just available somewhere I can see it. I’m … Keep reading
Hi everyone! I’m taking a week-long break, as I’m driving to Kentucky for my cousin’s wedding. Back Thursday the 10th – see you then!

IFography is primarily a print fanzine that happens to be distributed through the Internet, so there’s only a PDF … Keep reading
I expect to be a little less active here for the next month or so. I’m participating in ShuffleComp (or, according to my fiancée, SnuffleChomp) and I’m going to be working on my entry in the time that I normally allocate to this blog. I apologize for the lower … Keep reading
