Brenda Romero calls out bestselling video game-themed e-book for leaving out credit score

Brenda Romero, the online game designer identified for her work on the Wizardry collection, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Commander and extra, has criticised a bestselling e-book for leaving off her credit score.

Gabrielle Zevin’s 2022 e-book, Tomorrow, And Tomorrow, And Tomorrow, follows two associates who “come together as creative partners in the world of video game design”, the place success brings them “fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality”.

Last Sunday (February 12), Romero tweeted to share that she finds it “hard to believe” that the in-book online game, Solution, “is not inspired by” her 2009 board recreation Train.

Train is about complicity. It is not a game you win. If you win, you lose,” she wrote. “You subvert the rules to break the Third Reich. I showed it at MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology].”

She added in a follow-up tweet: “You can credit me. I was there. I was the only one who made it. Thanks for calling it genius at least.”

“I could be wrong about this, of course,” she continued. “There might be one other recreation in regards to the Third Reich that each courted controversy and important reward (I gained a BAFTA).

“One of the book’s themes is apparently about women in gamesdev not getting the same credit as men. Interesting.”

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow gained Winner for Best Fiction by Goodreads, ranked because the primary Amazon Book of the Year, was awarded Book of the Year by Apple and was named Time journal’s Novel of the Year.
