My wife is a romantic. For most of my life, I figured I was to. While we were dating I would perform extravagant acts of romance. Hot air balloon birthdays, surprise dresses and tickets to Romeo & Juliet, poetry, song and heartfelt meaningful cards. And then we got married.

A Father, a Dying Son, and the Quest to Make the Most Profound Videogame Ever | WIRED

Fri, 01/08/2016 - 10:04 -- rprice

You know you will have to play this game at some point. You will have to confront all of these moments, and many more. But not yet. Instead, you find the bespectacled man wearing a narrow-brimmed straw fedora and a close-cut red beard. This is Ryan Green. Hold out your hand and share a sad smile, a silent acknowledgment of what you both know—what Green himself didn’t know when he started working on That Dragon, Cancer, what he didn’t know the first time he brought it here to PAX. You know how the game ends. You know that Joel dies.

IndieGames.com A Tale of Tales Interview on Sunset

Tue, 04/21/2015 - 12:42 -- rprice

I think it feels at once calm and hectic, removed and immersed. The entire situation is set up as this duality - so, for example, the tasteful interior of the apartment offers a haven for the threatening hostility of the city, but no protection. You visit the apartment every week, while the owner is out. You get a short list of housekeeping tasks to do. But there are also other activities that are not on the list. And you're entirely free to choose what you do. There's no victory or failure conditions in Sunset, but everything you do nudges the narrative a little bit.
