Adam Bishop's Blog


Adam is the creator of the independent experimental game Time Flows, But Does Not Return and has taken part in the Experimental Gameplay Project.

He's also the author of the political noir fantasy novel The Disillusioners.

Adam has previously worked for a large game developer in Montreal, but is now a programmer in another industry. While his formal education is in the history of 20th century international relations, he has been making games in some form or other (board games, card games, video games) for most of his life and it's a field he'll continue to be a part of.  He currently has multiple projects in the works, which may make all of them less likely to ever see the light of day.

Going exclusive may or may not have been a bad idea for Tomb Raider, but I suspect the decision to release on the same day as Fallout 4, which practically monopolised press coverage and gamer attention, was also a fairly large factor in TR 's disappointing sales.
