About Dustin Tigner
I'm Dustin Tigner and I write GameLit, Fantasy, and Science Fiction.
There are two things I've always been: a writer and a game designer. In 2003, I built and ran a writing community of over two thousand members for six years. Shortly after college, I published 7Strains: The Infectious, an Xbox 360 game. And on September 4th, 2017, I coined the term GameLit.
Most of my full-length works will be GameLit, though I'm always looking for ways to improve as a storyteller and use short stories to explore craft, characters, and ideas. Join my newsletter to receive updates concerning new releases, free stories, and connect with me. Your feedback—positive or negative—is always helpful.
If you have any questions for me, please reach out! I'm on most GameLit FB groups, @DustinTigner on Twitter, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Heaven sucks. It most definitely, undeniably did not live up to the expectation of a paradise in the clouds, not with the talking spiders, evil priests of Light, and war, lots of war.
Those of Light simply wouldn’t leave the fledgling village—Dedu Tedu Novus—alone. Peace was not on the menu. The seven declarations of war made that point crystal clear.
Worse, in a series of unfortunate and escalating events, our stray King of Shadows finds himself where he really ought not to be.
But maybe . . . this is a good thing?
Dhane, Dhane, Dhane . . . what ever will you do next? Uncover forgotten truths? Form alliances with monsters? Take a stroll in the most dangerous places a Shadow can be?
Stray Shadow is the second book in the Arachnomancer, GameLit series. It's chock full of funny, fun, and silly things, including a butt-lickingly cute cat. Join Dhane on another wild adventure as he continues to fight for the Cobalins; meet whacky, new friends; and find himself in the most bizarre of situations.
Dhane kicked the bucket in spectacular fashion, every bone crushed, every organ popped against the full force of a 40-ton garbage truck speeding through a red light.
The only part of him intact—whole—entirely unaffected by the grisly affair, was his soul. Souls are durable things, you see, like kids: they bounce.
And bounce he did, into the abyss between worlds, drifting until one excited soul watcher fished him out and found him a new home, a heaven for gamers and nerds and everything in between.
It was all he could have ever wanted in the afterlife, down to choosing his class, killing mobs, and exploring a beautiful, fantasy world chock full of mysteries yet to be discovered.
At least . . . it would have been those things if that first day had gone a little, tiny bit differently.
Instead, he now finds himself locked in the middle of an eternal conflict between Light and Shadow—humans and monsters—potentially being the enemy to all.
Wrong Divinity is the start of a new GameLit series that balances comedy with serious themes. It's an isekai, a portal fantasy, to the spirit realm. Join Dhane, our underdog, as he explores his new world, a world full of unique characters, RPG mechanics, and spiders—ugly, terrifying spiders—while he learns what it means to be an Arachnomancer.
Exploit. Extract. Exit! These are the rules of a Dungeon Runner, though Entin has yet to write them and make his mark on the fledgling virtual world of Eternal Fantasy Online.
Three weeks ago, the Garentin colony ship—a century out from Earth—digitized their population in a desperate hope to survive a devastating terrorist attack. The colony of two thousand people must come to terms that this new world is their home forevermore.
Having lost everything, Entin is now a lowly market Runner, working for copper chyps to buy food and share whatever extra with the orphanage. It's grueling, thankless work. That is, until a new, much more lucrative job, finds its way to him.
But nothing is ever easy. There are risks involved with going out into the Wilds, a place of monsters and dangerous mysteries. Is the loot worth it? What price will he have to pay to succeed where others have failed?
Dungeon Runner is a free GameLit serial. It's full of adventures, puzzles, and unusual paths to success. Watch Entin define the role of a Dungeon Runner and push the bounds of his reality in this new virtual fantasy world with endless possibilities.
New dungeons, new friends, new loot!
Entin Soroy was the fastest market Runner in the City of Creannan. Now he's a Dungeon Runner. The only problem is, dungeons are high-risk, mysterious places that adventurers are wary of adventuring.
But who needs a party, anyway? All of the loot—the money, the items, the . . . junk—is just sitting there, waiting to be nabbed by someone skilled enough and fast enough to escape.
Of course, dungeoneering without killing mobs introduces an all-new set of challenges, challenges Entin finds potentially insurmountable given his lack of time.
The orphanage is struggling. Food prices continue to rise, casting more people to the streets to beg for copper chyps. If Entin can't make Dungeon Running work, he might have to return to market Running.
Or maybe there's another way, a way that doesn't depend on adventurers who are playing it safe as to not risk their gear.
Dungeon Runner 2 is nearly twice as long as the first episode. It's full of fun, new characters, dungeons, challenges, and more. It is time for Entin to step up and make Dungeon Running work. The question, though, is whether or not he can succeed when everything is on the line.
