Tod Foley (that’s me) is a game designer, writer, editor & web developer, founder and proprietor of the interactive development studio As If Productions. He has developed over 100 websites and online environments for e-commerce and entertainment clients, written in-house and end-user documentation for games, digital products and software systems, and served as editor for both fiction and nonfiction publications. That is to say, I have.

Tod (still me) is the author of numerous roleplaying games including CORE Micro (2020), Other Borders (2016), DayTrippers (2015), Watch the World Die (2014) and CyberSpace (1989), curator/editor of the UbiquiCity project (2017), designer of the GII Award-winning online World of South Park for Comedy Central and the Ocean Voyager edutainment game for Times-Mirror Magazines, writer/producer of the live interactive theatrical presentation Ghosts In the Machine (CyberArts International, 1992), and Senior Editor of PIX-elation magazine (1993-1996). Tod and I are both fascinated by the application of systems logic to creative challenges and narrative engineering, from roleplaying games and simulated worlds to emergent stories and gamification.
