This is my personal page for Recommendations (freshly released books, papers, and similar on game design and neighboring disciplines I think you should check out); Reflections (brief thoughts and links on game design, the indie community, and the games industry); and Recreations (events I’m attending, online or onsite, where you can meet me if you want to).

Meanwhile, you can buy the book or check out the book chapters if you haven’t already done so!


November 4–5, 2023
Over the weekend on November 4 and 5, I’ll be taking part in the virtual Fediverse Book Fair; you can follow along the #FediBookFair and #Ludotronics hashtags and make remarks, ask questions, or just say hi!

October 27, 2023
On Friday, October 27, I will be at the Mediadesign University’s Open Campus Day, with “Creative Day Events” from 3–6 p.m. and a Campus Party that will commence at 6:30 p.m. I have as yet no link (or can’t find it); I will post it here as soon as it pops up. Otherwise, just drop me a note!

October 19, 2023
I’ll be attending the Afterworkshop at the Wacom Center in Düsseldorf, Germany.

September 27, 2023
In case you’re a member of the DJW, you can meet me at the informal member exchange in Düsseldorf; registration required. (Curiously, an improbably number of people I meet around games and interactive media have studied Modern Japan—two years additional studies, in my case—and some of them are members of, or hover around, the DJW.)

September 16, 2023
On Saturday, September 16, you can catch up with me at the GamingDays #2 festival in Düsseldorf, Germany.

September 12–14, 2023
I’ll be attending PWA’s online Science Fiction Writers’ Week from Tuesday, SEP 12, through Thursday, SEP 14. (I’m busy on Monday, regrettably.) If you’re on and the chatbox is too busy, which it probably will, we can open a backchannel on Discord, just drop me a note!
