Game Programming for Artists

The book is out!

Queer Game Studies

Queer Game Studies

I'm honored to be included in this project and it's available now! The collection is filled with wonderful people and perspectives, and I can't understate what the Queerness and Games Conference - where this project started - has meant to me. Edited by Bonnie Ruberg and Adrienne Shaw, you can pick it up, support them, queer academia and queer perspectives in games!
