Writers Cabal, Farewell

You may have noticed that for several months, Writers Cabal Blog was not updated.  In fact, in March 2009, we parted ways without deciding the fate of Writers Cabal Blog.

Because we still have our games, like Wizard 101, and books (Professional Techniques for Videogame Writing and Writing for Video Game Genres) out there, we have decided to keep the blog up and we may update it from time to time.

We hope that you have enjoyed our many posts on games and game writing.  Farewell 2009.

Do we need a game vernacular?

Over the summer, I had the pleasure of participating in the Gamer Confab on Michael Abbott’s blog, The Brainy Gamer.  Along with Justin Keverne, who writes Groping the Elephant, and Roger Travis from Living Epic blog, we discussed social games, game vernacular, Denis Dyack, Wizard 101, game pricing, auteurs, narrative design, and game genres on this episode of The Brainy Gamer podcast.

Story in MMOs – Beckett Massive Online Gamer

Are writers the unsung heroes of MMOs? The Sept/Oct 2009 print edition of Beckett Massive Online Gamer features an article with a number of MMO writers, including two faces that you might know quite well. The article covers the frustrations of writing for MMOs and what the future has in store for story.  Why are we bringing it up so late?  We didn’t know about it until someone recognized our pictures!
