This second edition of Professional Techniques for Video Game Writing is updated with new chapters and new authors, but it’s still a no-nonsense guide to the professional craft of writing for video games.

The book also offers script samples, technical writing advice, effective writing tips, and suggestions for how to innovate in game narrative.
