DescriptionA marinated guide to game-making to help those in need.

A Twine game as a graphic novel as a manifesting manifesto.

Marinated Guide to Game Making is a manifesto disguised as a graphic novel disguised as a Twine game. The text in this work is sourced from a collection of game design fundamentals books, often with contradicting and controversial claims, and sometimes downright misogynistic ideologies. This work subverts these isolated claims by contradicting them with each other in a labyrinth of hypertext interactions and putting the "fundamental rules" of game design in contrast with ironic, sarcastic drawings/comics. Through this subversion, the work aims to manifest a manifesto against the established rules of the games industry and encourage players to make any game they want beyond the confines.
