My name is Michael Thomét and I am a game designer specializing in narrative experiences. I hold an MA in English (Rhetoric and Composition) where I did research on play styles and narrative in games. I am currently finishing up my MFA in digital art and new media, where I have designed a number of games, each focusing on narrative experiences.

I spend more than a usual amount of time thinking about games, both those I have played and those I want to make. Much of this thought surrounds how the designers are providing for a specific experience, and how they use various narrative techniques to get the player to feel exactly what is needed for that experience.

This site is built as a repository of my recent work, including games I have made and things I have written. It serves as an interactive portfolio, a résumé, and a presentation of my self.
