The SmartMonsters Bookstore
SmartMonsters' games are not for everyone. We write for
adults with fairly rich educational and cultural backgrounds.
We assume our players like to read, and know how to type. We don't
write for kids. If this sounds like you, welcome!
to read our essay, "Can a Game be Literature?"
The works listed here have all been used in some way as
our flagship game.
