Maurice Suckling has worked in the games industry for over twenty years, with over forty published video game titles to his name. He’s worked as a producer, a designer, a voice director, a motion capture director, an animation director, but most often as a writer.

In addition to his work in games he has also worked in TV, and published a collection of short stories and a novel.

His research interests include storytelling in games, board and card games as narrative systems, history in games, and the history of games.

Recently the second edition of his co-authored Video Game Writing: from macro to micro has been published by Mercury Learning, and the games Civilization VI, Killing Floor 2, and Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, all of which he worked on, as a writer or narrative designer, have been released.
