5.0 out of 5 stars Useful information
A good,straightforward, informative book that arrived in time. Lots of useful anecdotal evidence rather than scholarly research which I found added well to the mix of material I have used.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really aimed at the novice
There is a lot of the practicalities associated with video game writing discussed throughout, and although I personally am a fan of Steve Ince's 'pseudo-code' (a mix of C-style coding and branching with character dialogue interspersed throughout), I can see how this approach won't appeal to everyone.

There is a lot of the practicalities associated with video game writing discussed throughout, and although I personally am a fan of Steve Ince's 'pseudo-code' (a mix of C-style coding and branching with character dialogue interspersed throughout), I can see how this approach won't appeal to everyone. Aimed probably more at the practising or professional writer, ultimately this book comes up short if, like me, you're looking for more advice and tips (as a beginner) on how to get started or 'pitch' for work, and thus ultimately proved disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could ask for a lot more...., 3 Feb 2013
This book offers an interesting approach to video games writing if you come from the background of a professional writer with no idea whatsoever about video games. If you already know about video games and want to know more about the role of the writer or how to write a good game, you'll find very few useful pages here, as a lot of paper goes about the basics of playing a game. The writing is interesting, but very superficial and with just a couple of examples from actual games.
