Embed with Games : A Year on the Couch with Game Developers Paperback


In 2014 games critic Cara Ellison rather flippantly pledged to the internet she'd leave home, become itinerant, and travel around the world to live with and write about some of the most interesting game developers and their cultural outlook.

As your 'cyberpunk hair-dyed Attenborough', originally Cara put up the Embed With Games series monthly on a free blog as she travelledfrom couch to couch, writing about the people she met and about the way our game creators express the culture around them.

The internet generously helped fund her travel costs through a subscription service, egging her on in the only way it could.

This is the collected work, called Embed With Games with an exclusive introduction from Kieron Gillen, a cover from Irene Koh, and a conclusion exclusive to the ebook.
