Mastering Celtx has its own blog, and recent posts have included discussions of screenwriting for documentaries and videogames.

More posts on the nuts and bolts of screenwriting (as they relate to Celtx) are scheduled. For scriptwriters working on the “bleeding edge” of media convergence, this is definitely worth investigating.

Podcast About Game Writing and Storytelling

leave a comment »

Game Central LogoThe guys at game-central.org have been cranking out hour-long weekly podcasts for a couple of years, and decided to interview me for this week’s podcast. They came armed with a bunch of questions, and I did my best to come up with some answers. It was nice revisiting the work we did on the Wing Commander game series many years ago, which was my entry into “alt” screenwriting. Take a listen and enjoy!

Speaking at UNM ArtsLab April 2

leave a comment »

End to End Game Development coverI’ll be speaking at the University of New Mexico’s ArtsLab Friday, April 2 at noon, as part of their ongoing Digital Lunch series.

The topic will be my new book End to End Game Development, published by Focal Press.  I plan to offer a quick sampling of serious game output, and discuss some of the unique issues faced by developers of serious games, persuasive games and simulations.

If you find yourself in Albuquerque on that date, please come!
