thechineseroom is the name of a development research project I run at the University of Portsmouth, UK. We're interested in first person gaming - particularly, using mods to explore questions about gaming that you can't answer by just analysing commercial releases or theorising about them.

Quite a few people have asked about other bits of writing and stuff... so because it's xmas - I've uploaded this novel I wrote - Eugene's Box... you can get it here: www.thechineseroom.co.uk/EugenesBox.pdf
Enjoy it, and feel free to distribute, send me thoughts and feedback, etc, etc. It's a bit rough in places, but better it gets read than sits waiting to be ignored by publishers....
Also... quiet at the moment, but two major projects potentially on the table for 2010. Can't say more now, and neither are guaranteed, but if all goes well, we should see the Dear Esther remake at the end of the year, and potentially one or two standalone games around the same time. Scary and exciting in equal measure and as always, dear readers, you will be the very first to know...
have a great one
