Anyone else previously come from a game design and story writing background, before hopping on to writing short stories, novels, and poetry?
A lot of the science fiction and fantasy that influenced me came from: Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, Grandia, Arc The Lad, Xenogears, and other JRPGs. I recently also got into playing Roguelikes.
So initially a lot of my writing carried over from some of the video games I played, as I tried to apply them in RPG Maker. Then it later evolved in its own right to stand on its own. Until eventually morphing from the Silent Hill/Grandia cross over I was used to into writing more literary leaning Science fantasy thought pieces.
How about you?
