Against Worldbuilding, by Alexis Kennedy: a book on video games
Dispatches from a small business in
Materials: paper, ink
Against Worldbuilding, and Other Provocations is the debut collection of essays from Alexis Kennedy, creator of Fallen London, Sunless Sea and Cultist Simulator.
For twelve years, he's been writing some of the most original and intelligent narrative games of the last decade as well as guest-writing gigs for BioWare, Paradox and Telltale Games.
And for most of that time, he's been writing *about* games as well. Here for the first time in one place are the best of his essays and columns - from hard-won lessons about game development to reviews of unreviewable games, from narrative design principles to writing masterclasses, from historical discursions on labyrinths to the notorious 'Against Worldbuilding'.
Over two hundred pages of game development wisdom, wrapped up in a slightly alarming paperback cover. With an introduction by Oxford University classicist Matt Hosty.

The contents and prose of Alexis Kennedy is amazing. I would have liked a hardback version or for the book cover to be more reinforced to avoid damages in the shipping process.
