Cypress Knee Game Dev Diary No. 8: The Real Florida Book Club

When you’re building a Star Wars MUSH, you’ve got decades of movies, TV shows, and books to fall back on.

But what about when you’re developing a MUSH around crazy Florida? Well, good news: Turns out, storytellers have done an excellent job of documenting the outlandish tales of the Sunshine State over the years.

So, for those of you who aren’t from Florida but want to prepare yourself for delving into the surreal swampiness that awaits in Cypress Knee MUSH, here’s a brief selection of Florida-focused non-fiction books as primers:
