HELLO! AND WELCOME TO GAMES AS LIT. 101
... Sorry, force of habit. Rather, welcome to my Patreon. I make Games as Lit. 101, a weekly web series that analyzes video games from a literary perspective. Based on a high school class of my own design, this series aims to educate my viewers not just on literary theory, but what makes interactive media a unique avenue for storytelling.

WHAT IS GAMES AS LIT. 101?
It's a variety of different things! Sometimes it's a game review series, with brief discussions about whatever games I've been playing lately. Sometimes it's a look into a specific topic, like how a certain video game tells its story or what's going on in video game culture. But most importantly, it's occasional in-depth examination of a particular video game, what it means, and how it uses its interactive properties to tell its story. 

OUR GOALS
In the long run, I'd love to create an actual curriculum, a real way for schools to teach kids how to appreciate and interpret video games. In the meantime, I'm contributing what I can to the discourse of interactive narrative study through this webseries. In short, I want to play a part in improving the understanding and presence of video games in the academic space. And those endeavors start with this series, to garner a level of online presence while teaching viewers about how video games tell stories.

I'll begin work on an ambitious video series about the theology of the main-entry Final Fantasy games! I'm real excited to do this one.
