30 April 2015 - A few new items to add:
  • Two new articles on Gamasutra, both about the art and craft of game design and culture:
"Man In The Moonbase : The Death and Life of the Best Game You Never Played"
  • I have finished editing my next novel, Adventure! and I put the final touches on a new full-length play, Deadbug. More news about these as they develop.
  • Still working on a secret title for Ubisoft Montreal. Check back in 2028 for more info. Maybe earlier.

5 September 2013 - It's been a long time between updates! A ton of new things to report.
  • Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag will be out soon. I'm the Lead writer. It's the biggst game I have ever worked on. It's the best game I have ever worked on. Look for it on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wi U and PC this holiday season.
  • Technoir Classics is the name of an album I recorded and released last year.
  • Are Gam(er)s Artist(s)? is a long-form article I wrote on the tricky intersection of video games and narratives, and my belief that game systems are getting less critical attention than narrative systems. Published in Gamasutra.

15 November 2011 - The game Assassin's Creed: Revelations and the accompanying film Assassin's Creed: Embers -- both of which I wrote -- are now available! And they're getting some good reviews. IGN even called Revelations "...the best Assassin's Creed yet." I'll take it!

25 July 2011 - Assassins Creed: Revelations is coming along nicely. We showed a demo at E3, as well as a trailer. Also, upon its release in November, the game will be accompanied by a 20 minute short film I wrote called Assassins Creed: Embers. See the trailer here.

10 April 2011 - I recorded a new song and made a lazy video for it. "The Fourth Wall".
