Paul Dunn is passionate about video games and the stories they tell. From those early days when he would sit watching his Commodore 64 load Elite from a cassette tape, he was hooked on the way gaming could open up entire worlds and spin fantastic stories that he could participate in. While the hardware has changed, his love of these immersive and interactive stories hasn’t.
Paul’s background in writing covers everything from crafting interview scripts about development projects in South Asia to publishing industry whitepapers on emerging business technologies, but his passion is for games. He has spent a number of years as a narrative designer and game writer, and currently works as a game designer on cutting edge educational games for virtual reality. When he’s not writing and designing them, Paul plays whatever he can get his hands on, from board games to tabletop and of course video games.
Paul has a BA in Media Studies from Massey University and is a game designer in Auckland, New Zealand.
