I’m Alex Wiltshire

I write and consult about videogames. I work on communications for Hello Games, am co-curating a videogame exhibition for the V&A Museum, and regularly write about technology for Dezeen. I also wrote an official book on Minecraft for Egmont called the Minecraft Blockopedia.

Until April 2013 I was editor of Edge, where I worked for six years across its magazine and website. I developed my journalism career on the design and architecture magazine Icon and as a web editor for Channel 4.

I’ve written about videogames, design and technology for many publications including New Statesman, PC Gamer, Eurogamer, Official Xbox Magazine, Design Week and Architects’ Journal, and wrote various entries in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I have also frequently spoken at universities and industry events such as the Develop conference, and regularly serve on judging panels, including the BAFTA Games Awards and IGF.

I’ve also made websites, including Baby Cakes and No Man’s Sky.

I live in Bath, UK, with my wife and two children.
