The Lazy Designer: The Next Game

So… years ago… I republished my first Lazy Designer book via my newsletter. It was well received and my frank advice on working in the video game industry connected with many readers. So I started to serialize its sequel via the newsletter as well.

Then I got divorced and I forgot about the newsletter entirely. A few years later and I am now resurfacing several postponed projects! I feel bad for neglecting the newsletter… so I’m going to start over with posting the “Next Game”. The first post will drop in the next few days and after that I will try to get into a regular cadence with those updates (i.e., not years between posts…)

But I am also going to take the opportunity to begin rewriting sections as needed. Since my time at BioWare I have had several more years in the game industry in different capacities so I feel I have new perspectives to offer. I may even need to argue with my past self. We shall see..

I also encourage any of you to ask me questions here, or via the newsletter (or Twitter or Facebook!) if you want to know anything about the games I’ve worked on in the past, my writing, or what I might be working on now.
