Hi! My name is Leslie “Byvivre” Brooks.

I write about videogame design. I am especially interested in analyzing how videogames’ mechanics can express themes and tell stories, and so create meaningful and worthwhile experiences for the player that go beyond mere fun.

In case you were curious: the blog’s title is a pun on Robert Nozick’s famous thought experiment, The Experience Machine.
