My name’s Eddy (with a “y”, thank you). I’m a transmedia writer and game designer for video games, role-playing games, and whatever else you’ll throw at me. In this blog I’ll talk about whatever crosses my mind as interesting, but it’ll generally revolve around games, stories, writing, Sherlock Holmes, and general geekery.
If you don’t like what you’re reading, I encourage you to stop. My thoughts are just my opinions, not fact. If you are concerned about something, ask. Basically, don’t be a dick.
Quoting: I own everything that I post here (unless I explicitly mention that I don’t). It’s okay to post links to pages and posts on the site, but please don’t copy or quote anything from the site without explicit permission from me in advance. I’m usually okay with giving permission, so feel free to ask, but do not assume.
Reviews: Since I started my “What I Learned” and “Peer Review” series, I’ve gotten a small trickle of requests to do reviews. I’m happy to do a review if the product falls in line with the theme — i.e., that it teaches me something about game design, narrative, and writing, or provides a good example of something I can use to help educate other people. If I don’t review your game or book, that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it — just that I couldn’t think of anything good to blog about based on it.
Also, because I’m friends with a lot of people who are writers, game designers, and video game creators, don’t expect unbiased opinions. In fact, it’s best to assume that I’m utterly biased, and any unbiased comments that might result are largely due to coincidence or drink.
