New Adventures In Essays

I sent Irene some money and she sent me the cover for my Embed With Games book! 50,000 words are currently in professional editing with a literary editor.

Support my writing





Meanwhile, at my Patreon (please do subscribe to support me), I am trying to give myself a break by halting my travelling and vagabonding. I am going to write you an essay a month still, but just not (strictly) about game developers. It will still be my usual stuff, and usual quality, but with respect to actually maybe settling in one place and having a place to live (so I don’t go doolally).


I’m so excited to announce the first of these brave new essays will be a mini comic made by Irene and I! I love her so much and we have been making this thing for ages. So I am giving her half my Patreon money this month so that she can finish it. Please do join me in paying her more money, and subscribe to her Patreon too.
