  • The Allure of E-Sports

    Forward: A lot of people seem to think that E-Sports are silly, and not real sports. There is an argument to be had there, but one that is beyond the scope of this piece. If you want to argue with me in the comments, feel free. I want to intentionally... More

    The 2007 indie game Passage could be considered one of the standard bearers for the art game genre. Created by Jason Rohrer, for a game jam event, Passage went on to receive a significant amount of attention in the mainstream press with some critics outside... More
  • Review: Bravely Default

  • Don't Like It? Make Your Own Game

    It's a defense that all but kills any credibility a developer and its cult lose when they drop this low. In my eyes, to "make your own game" just to prove something just has you going down to their level - a crappy developer with a crappier... More
