What is GameLit?

GameLit Stories

Simply put, GameLit is a kind of story that borrows heavily from videogames, or has direct elements of such a game, like levels, boss-fights, character classes etc. The crunchiest form is LitRPG, but these stories will never be that.

Mythography GameLit will always sit in the intersection of a fun story and one that has some select Game Elements. If you are not a gamer, these stories are still for you. Don’t feel daunted by something you’re not familiar with.

We made a page for the Gamelit Stories, it’s just a spot where everything can be found quickly.

Our titles with GameLit elements so far are the following:

And more are added every day. You can find the non-Kindle-Unlimited titles on the shop:

Binge-Worthy Reads: Return of the Aghyrians by Patty Jansen

Watcher’s Web is an exciting survival story set in an alien wilderness.

She is lost on an alien planet. He said he’d help her get home. He lied.

Jessica’s plane develops engine trouble over the dry Australian inland—and crashes in thick, unfamiliar rainforest.

A group she thinks is a search party shows up, but it consists of large-eyed not-quite people who kill all survivors except Jessica and a long-haired hippie named Brian.

No one is going to come to rescue her. In fact, they’re not even on Earth.

While the pair wrestle their way through the forest in search for help, Jessica becomes ever more suspicious of Brian. Why does he know so much about the world where they have ended up? Why is he so insistent on helping her?

Jessica has always been able to use her mind to tell animals what to do and now she’s hearing voices in her head. Another man is pleading her not to listen to Brian. Except this man can kill someone with a single look, and he uses his mental powers to order people around.

In this utterly strange and dangerous world where people seem to want something from her, who can she trust?

A gritty survival story in the vein of The Hunger Games, set in a Star Wars locality.

The rich and powerful tapestry of world building captures the imagination and just doesn’t let go. The characters are full of life and complexity. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is easy to identify with the peoples and through suspension of disbelief, this world was very real, as are the struggles being faced. Love books that make me think about what I would or wouldn’t do in that situation. Great strong female lead.

Hollywood, are you listening? This story should be made into a movie! Avatar, move over. There’s a new kid on the block! This story is well written and the characters have plenty of depth. The story flows from one page to the next, from one chapter to the next. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from page one til the end.

100 Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books to Read in a Lifetime

Amazon has a list of the year’s best books. What we care about is the Sci-fi list, so here it is:

Click to see the list on Amazon

I’ve already bought Oathbringer and Artemis.

Of the rest, Persepolis Rising is definitely on my list. David Wong’s “What the Hell Did I Just Read” is also on there, I loved the last book.

Ann Leckie has no chance of ever getting my time, ever again.

The Book of Dust is getting passed around all the time in my social media echo chamber, so I’ll give it a shot.

What else should I add to my TBR pile?
