Article: a professional writer on the usefulness of video games
Maxwell Neely-Cohen’s first novel, Echo of the Boom, is being published this April 15th. Six independent video game developers are making experimental games inspired by the text. He writes: “As a kid, video games taught me just as much about writing as novels did. The thousands of hours I spent with my head in books were matched by the thousands of hours I spent at my computer. In my child brain, they didn’t seem as if they were disparate forms belonging to different centuries”.
