    Tom, thanks for covering this! Ken Levine is one of the great video game designers and his latest undertaking is nothing short of ground-breaking for the medium.

    Levine is among one of only a handful of designers using video games as a medium not just to entertain and tell a story, but to create an emotional and intellectual impact that film/television cannot. He is truly a pioneer who deserves recognition.

    Thanks for bringing this to the attention to those who aren’t hooked into the world of video games!
