Bruno Dias is creating games, words, criticism

I'm Bruno Dias, and I'm a games writer, designer, and theorist. I write free interactive fiction about diffident superheros and implacable plagues. I also write criticism and theory about games for various outlets (you can find my bylines at ZEAL, Zam.com, Giant Bomb). I maintain some open-source tools for the IF community, as well as safe and progressive spaces (&if/if) for people in that community.

I want to keep doing this kind of small-scale, experimental work in games and interactive narrative, as well as criticism and theory writing that doesn't necessarily fit in with the needs of commercial outlets - like reviews of non-commercial IF and discussion of IF design principles.

Your support might help me do more of this work that I make available for free to everyone involved in IF, Altgames, and interactive narrative. If you're able to contribute: thank you so much.

Goals
$50 of $50 per creation
At this point, I can justify investing significant time into building a short piece of IF, a piece of criticism/tutorial/theory writing under 2000 words, or a significant code update to an open-source project.
