  1. Thanks Tom, good reading.
  2. Hey, thanks for any advice. So I've got an IP with a tiny bit of traditional publishing street cred, not much yet, but it's selling - and what I want to do is see if any developers out there would be interested in partnering to make it into some kind of game.   Straight up, I don't care what kind, or if it stays true to the IP, or if it's an MMO or RPG or shooter or sidescroller or anything. 8-bit Pong with faces, OK by me.  I would not want to influence the dev or anything. I want to see what you guys come up with. The narrative has a lot of angles.   Is there a right place or a wrong place to pitch it? What's a good way to approach people? Just email left and right, or is there a process? I know most like to write their own story, which is important, but this already has OPM behind it, so there are easy angles to getting it publicized.   Thanks for any help.   -gs
  3. The image above just links to the giveaway, I couldn't get the widget code to work in here.  https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/79503-game-slaves   I figured there might be some people here who'd want to enter.    Props go from me to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for even attempting to put this book on the market. Ready Player One is very different, and there are so few books in this category anyway.   It was originally pitched as adult science fiction. Cover art is by Dominic Harman: http://bleedingdreams.com/BleedingDreams/ Interior art is by Cameron Davis (Dreamworks, Guitar Hero etc.) http://cdavisart.com/
  4. Endorphins. Most of the good ideas I have come during or right after going outside and pushing it. At least that's what I tell my wife. Adrenaline helps pay the bills.
  5. books thread

    Logan's Run. That you game devs have not made something derivative of the original book (not the movie, the movie was as much like the book as World War Z was like that Brad Pitt fiasco) is a real crime. The book has deep issues on the table and plenty of twisted action.   OK then, also read World War Z.   Soon I Will Be Invincible   and...   Starship Troopers.
  6. Request for photos of cool workspace

    That could inspire hundreds of elementary school students to plan a career in manual labor. What's in the prescription bottle?
  7. Hey there, thanks for allowing this, sorry it's my first post.   I'm speaking in schools for a while and need 5-10 interesting shots of great game developer offices.   Places that would make kids think "my life's quest is to work there."   Anyone mind giving me help? email is fine: g3@gard3.com , post a link or put them here and I'll grab them.   thanks,   -gs
