Quinn's most famous game, Depression Quest, has been played by over 2 million people. Prior to the #Gamergate explosion, Quinn's work was praised in such outlets as Forbes, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, Kotaku, Paste, and GiantBomb.

A thorough, nuanced look at the problem of (and solutions to) Internet harassment. Quinn goes beyond her own experience to include the perspectives of other people who've been targets of online hate mobs, paints an empathetic picture of the factors that motivate online harassers, offers concrete steps that we can take to improve the culture both online and off, and does it all with frank honesty and a sense of humor.
