“I wouldn’t pitch a story using the term game. You have to have one that’s successful for a game to work.” – Paige West
“I would say doesn’t a three inch story trivialize a complex issue? The sort of ‘fun’ issue I would just avoid entirely. It’s more of an exercise in rhetoric.” – Ian Bogost
“Use interactive element or something like that.” – Howard Finberg
