Alex Roberts

Writer and Game Designer

I make games. I play them. I think about them. I write about them.

In addition to publishing my own tabletop role-playing games, I've written setting material and developed interactive systems both independently and in some pretty awesome teams, like Bully Pulpit Games, Pelgrane Press, Thorny Games, and more!

I've also published long form journalism, criticism, and other writing for clients that include Vice, ZEAL, Waypoint, Storycade, and Leaving Mundania.

I love to share my passions. Through my presentations and workshops, I can help you and your team make playful connections, open up creative possibilities, and probably burst out laughing.

I love helping people become more in tune with their playful selves.
