I'm Michael. I'm one of the writers for Parable and a university student to be. I'm the kind of gamer who prefers to sink into a highly polished single player experience rather than a multi-player one, with pretty much all of my favourite games being single player ones. Hopefully I'll be studying English Literature at university come September.
