To tell you a little more about Steve, here is part of the bio from his blog:
Steve Ince is an award-nominated Writer-Designer with 19 years of game development experience.
Starting out as an artist at Revolution Software, he moved over to production before settling into a writing and design role. He has played an important part in the success of a number of critically acclaimed games, including Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword and In Cold Blood.
Broken Sword – The Sleeping Dragon was a highlight of Steve’s time at Revolution. The game was awarded Game of the Year by the UK national newspaper, The Independent, as well as receiving three BAFTA nominations, including Best Game Design.
Sounds cool huh? Well he is! As is this recent piece he wrote that says all the reasons we NEED writers working on games: http://www.steve-ince.co.uk/blog/?p=1284
