About Me

John Ayliff reading from Belt Three at the Vancouver Public Library

I'm a science fiction writer and text-based game developer. I'm originally from the UK but now live in Vancouver, Canada.

My novel Belt Three was published in 2015 by Harper Voyager. My writing focuses on character drama against a backdrop of hard science fiction.

I develop text-based games and interactive fiction using Twine. I'm working on a variety of games but I'm especially interested in games involving procedural generation, tracking of stats, high levels of player choice, and multiple endings. You can find out more about my game development on my Patreon.
