I’m in print!

My essay, “Time Tech and Tales”, will be in the next issue of Well Played, the peer-reviewed journal on video games, value and meaning, edited by the amazing Drew Davidson. It will available for sale in a couple of weeks, but like all ETC Press publications, it will also be available for free from the ETC Press website.

“Time Tech and Tales” is about the history of narration in video games and its potential future, centering on the example of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and the evolution between those two games. It also briefly covers the recent emergence of “niche games.”

Telly Award

The music video that my visual story team, Out of Molehills, did last semester won a Telly Award! We won a bronze award in the category “Internet/Online Video – Animation”. As an encore, here’s our award-winning video!

Credit goes to all the members of the team, Maria Tartaglia who came up with the story and character design, Sivakumar Loganathan, who wrote and performed the music, me, I came up with the shadow puppet idea, did some of the puppetry and some of the cinematography decisions as well as the closing titles, and Weichuan Tian who did a lot of the puppetry.
