The Game about Love

Extended reading

Since I’ve started making this game people have recommended many books to read and games to play on the subject. After ploughing my way through most of them, I’m fairly confident that what we are doing defies genre.

It is not to say that I haven’t been gaining a lot of insight from the reading and copying everything I like for my game. 

The recent sources have been Emily Care Boss’s Love RPGs (‘Breaking the Ice’, ‘Shooting the Moon’). Passage (a flash game), and ‘The Lonely Planet Guide to Experimental Travel’.

They’ve given me much food for thought and if anyone has any more recommendations, keep them coming!
