Introduction

Hello, I’m Kyle and I play and write games. I do this because games are art and they connect me to lovely people and the wonderful mysteries of life. I couldn’t find the perfect place to share my thoughts and experiences about games, so I thought I’d make the perfect place. If you want to see the games and art that I make, go here.

What kind of games am I talking about here?

  • Indie games from places like Itch.io and Indiepressrevolution.com
  • Things I think are games but others might not
  • Not video games or D&D content (those are better covered in other places)

What is a game anyway?

“The voluntary attempt to overcome unnecessary obstacles”.

Bernard Suits, The Grasshopper: Games, Life and Utopia, 1978

I like to think of a game, and art in general, as something that helps you read the text of the world in a different way. Games often require that you take on a participatory role to bring out that unique reading.

What should I add the list of game I should play?

Is there a game you think I would like? Have you written a game I should play? Want to bump a certain game to the top of my list? Drop me an email!

Can’t wait to hear from you!
