The eBook Reader

A quick general update. You might have noticed that I haven’t posted yesterday. Funny thing. After a quite exhausting week and a late night StarCraft 2 session I went to sleep. I woke up at 5pm. With the day being over before it even began I decided to take a timeout. Obviously, I was in need of some rest.

So I took it slow. Cooked some good food. Watched the EG Masters Cup and started a book. I’m reading The Reader on my Kindle right now. This is the first full-length book I’m actually reading on the Kindle. So far I have been checking out mostly samples. As I mentioned before, the experience is really great. I’m eating up the pages like nothing.

The book itself is weird. In focuses (among other things) on a relationship between a 15 years old boy and a 36 years old woman. It is told from the perspective of the boy. In a way, it’s a reverse-Lolita. I do like the way it undermines preconceived notions about gender roles. However, in times where there is just so much paranoia of pedophilia, reading it feels a bit uncomfortable. But maybe that’s the whole idea. I know the book has more to offer and I’m looking forward to see how it develops.

And today I did get some TRAUMA work in as well. I made some great progress. It looks like I should be able to reach the goal I set myself last weekend. More details tomorrow.

The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany. On our first blog, Game Design Reviews we describe some games we played and point out various interesting details. Unfortunately, we found out that we also need some place to collect quick and dirty ideas that pop into our minds. Hence, welcome to Game Design Scrapbook. You will encounter wild, random rantings. Many of then incoherent. Some of them maybe even in German. If you don't like it, you might enjoy Game Design Reviews more.
