Hello, I'm Richard! I'm a UK based writer, game writer and designer and professional user of wonderful words, including 'revel' and 'nefarious'. Drop me an e-mail, follow me on Twitter, and if you like what you're seeing, maybe hire me to help you make cool things?

Who Heck Richard?

Why, thanks for asking. As it says above, I'm a freelance writer based in the city of York, England, with over 15 years of journalism experience under my belt, on magazines, newspapers and websites. More recently I've been working on the other side of games as a writer, designer and general narrative guy. I love making worlds and filling them with characters, as well as experimenting with the potential of storytelling mechanics. I'm always looking for cool new gigs, in pretty much any medium. Interested in working with me? You've got my e-mail...

The Long Journey Home


I have over 15 years experience working in the specialised tech and games press, both staff and freelance. You may have seen my words in or on such fine publications and websites as PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun, Eurogamer, Edge, PC Plus, PC Format, The Telegraph, and many others, both living and dead. That includes thousands of features, reviews, columns and more, including Crap Shoot (obscure games - click Features on the search page) and Critical Paths (story) for PC Gamer and my ongoing RPG Scrollbars column for Rock Paper Shotgun.
