Who Am I?
My name is Jesse Burneko. I live in Sourthern California and work as a professional video game programmer. My development of play passionately is rooted back in my college days when my primary interest was in taking interactive fiction (i.e. text adventures) in a more literary direction away from their puzzle game origins.
When I gave up on the more automated approach and returned to the more social one (i.e. tabletop role-playing) I discovered The Forge. In games like Sorcerer, My Life with Master and Dogs in the Vineyard, I found what I was trying to get at back in college. Today, I present it here as Play Passionately.
