Free Chapter: "Threading the Needle"

Saturday, 17 March 2018

Greetings, all,

In celebration of Rocket Jump's campaign reaching its one-month milestone yesterday, March 16, I've published one of the book's later chapters. "Threading the Needle" is an oral history of the making of the original Team Fortress mod for Quake. You can read it on Shacknews, where Rocket Jump was originally published, and where you can read two additional chapters.

If "Threading the Needle" marks your introduction to Rocket Jump, you can pledge to support the book on Unbound by pre-ordering a digital or hardcover edition. All hardcover pledges also receive a digital version of the book.

Rocket Jump consists of 24 chapters written in three distinct styles: narrative, Q-and-A interviews, and oral histories. "Threading the Needle" is one of two oral histories collected in the book. You can learn more about my writing process and styles by reading my Medium blog on Rocket Jump's structure and form.

As of this update, Rocket Jump has 167 backers and is 18% of the way toward its funding goal. We've got just shy of two months remaining on the counter, so make sure to tell all of your gaming friends and family members about the book to garner their support.

Enjoy your weekend!
