Following its self-published debut last month, Oscar Velikovsky's satire of the game development industry "Am So As" (A Meaningless Sequence of Arbitrary Symbols) has launched as a Kindle-compatible e-book.

Featuring collaboration from real-world devs Ernest Adams and Noah Falstein, "Am So As" captures the misadventures of budding game developer Oscar Velikovsky, who meets and is mentored by 82-year-old game designer and time machine inventor Godfrey Velikovsky.

Oscar eventually discovers the unsavory truth about Godfrey and plots to assassinate him, despite the fact that Godfrey may be Oscar's future self. Author Velikovsky notes that the novel's middle chapter offers an actual primer on game design.

Velikovsky claims that "Am So As" has been described by the New York Times as "The Catcher In the Rye meets The Third Policeman via Breakfast of Champions." If you have any other favorite books, it's probably like those too, except better.

The novel currently earns a perfect five-star customer rating at Amazon...based on a single review submitted by the author himself. Still, he seems to like it! Additional notes from villain Godfrey Velikovsky are available in the free e-novel BaNGST.
