Games Work

PlayStation Home – Key Projects (I worked on the vast majority of Lockwood’s output between 2010 & 2013, but these were the ones where I made the largest narrative contribution, usually in terms of creating in-game instructional text, dialogue and related promotional scripts and writings.)

Fallen – Cataclysm Adventure Pack (Developed branching narratives based on designers’ briefs)

Female Crime World – Personal Project (Made in response to the Flowers to Womans and masculinity being “key to the story” nonsense surrounding GTA V)

Unreleased titles – As is often the case in the games world, I’ve worked on numerous titles that remain unreleased. I can’t say anything about them here, but should you ever wish to know more, ask me and I’ll tell as much as my various NDA’s allow!

  1. After reading ‘Ghillie’s Mum’ i’ve developed a need for more of your short stories.
    Is there a book, a collection of your work? If not, don’t you think it’s time for one?
