On Alien Isolation and the Theory of Multiple Universes


I was musing on this subject and decided to put together an entire article about it. I posted it over at Medium, but here’s an excerpt:


When I first heard about the video game Alien Isolation, I said to my wife, “I want to play that, but I’m not sure I’ll actually be able to play it. I might end up just hiding in a closet the first time th...

I'm not going to claim that some of the complaints about this book are wrong. They're mostly correct: the main character is a bit of a superhero, the surrounding characters are sometimes thinly fleshed out, and I would've loved to get more descriptio ...more
