The book with my chapter on festivals of games and play finally came out! It was super interesting to do all the interviews, try to figure out what was going on with the festivals, and write about it.
The book is called “Examining the Evolution of Gaming and Its Impact on Social, Cultural, and Political Perspectives,” and my chapter is “Games Beyond the Screen: Festivals of Play.” You can read my chapter here on academia.edu if you’re interested. Sorry for the dry methodology section I had to include! 😄
So, now I’m finally all out of excuses for the lack of posts, besides working on Monster Garden in preparation for IndieCade Europe in November. But I’m planning to do some posts along the way about games that inspired Monster GardenーHarvest Moon 64, Ecco the Dolphin, Breath of Fire IV and Wiz ‘n’ Liz, to be exact. Hoping to get those up (and the game finished) by the end of the year!
