A downloadable book

Opening the Horse is an approach to queer game design. It's detailed in several parts.

  1. The three games that I've designed which enact the approach. Those are Noons, Squad Force Heroes, and On The Internet, Nobody.
  2. Opening the Horse, Vols. 0-2: A series of documents that discuss the theoretical underpinnings of the approach at length. Vols. 1-2 are forthcoming, and are expected to be released in mid-June.

You can see me talk about this approach in my talk from QGCon 2017.
