Emergent Mage is a website about video games: Game news, game reviews, game stories, and game feature articles.
Emergent Mage highlights games that use procedural generation, simulation, artificial intelligence, and randomness as a creative force for emergent narrative. The emphasis is on games in which unwritten stories emerge from the simulation and player decisions, as opposed to games with a fixed narrative.
While no games are off limits and the articles derive from the play experiences of site authors, most games covered exemplify an emphasis on emergent narrative. Colony simulators like Dwarf Fortress and Rimworld. Roguelikes like Caves of Qud and Nethack. Strategy games like Crusader Kings 3 and Shadow Empire.
