Gamer culture has taken on a life of its own. Not only is there a lot of money to be made in this burgeoning industry, but creatively, gaming opens new and exciting creative challenges.

Whether a writer is creating an interactive first-person adventure, or a broad MMPORG universe, non-linear storytelling will be in demand as video game technology continues its evolution from Pac-Man to Virtual Reality.
