I write games that make me want to live. I write what helps me to imagine something beyond myself that is at once myself. These are games of survival, knowing there is a war out there, knowing that we live in the remnants of war, that the war that does not cease. These are games that find joy despite war; that exist, that persist, despite it.
For me, games are fun because they allow me to be at once myself and someone else. I want to help people like me tell stories about themselves. I write for marginalized communities, for people who might understand the world differently than others.
These games are poetic and intimate; they ask you to be present with yourself and your community. They ask you to listen, to imagine, to wonder, and to resist.
Remember always that creating yourself is an act of defiance against those forces that seek to control how you see yourself. Each time you play a game, you have the potential to make yourself again, and again.
