About the Author

Tynan Sylvester first designed games in 2000. His smallest projects were one-man independent games on which he wrote every line of code and painted every frame of art. His largest was four years on Irrational Games’ 110-person development team making BioShock Infinite. He has also written several feature design articles for Gamasutra, the biggest game design website.Tynan believes that much of what we think of game design grows from the metaphors we use to describe it. He likes to work at finding metaphors that create useful answers instead of deadly assumptions. He also enjoys bacon and prefers Picard to Kirk.Tynan's game design blog is at tynansylvester.com. He likes talking to people, so go ahead and post a comment or email him at tynan.sylvester@gmail.com.
