VII: We Must Save The World For Ourselves is a pamphlet of essays disguised as a book that investigates Final Fantasy VII from anti-capitalist, anti-christian, and existentialist lenses. 

"The best close reading of FFVII I've ever read." - Brendan Vance, author of The Ghosts of Bioshock

"Enthralling, personable, and inspiring critique that starts to get at why this game feels so important to so many - an exploration that I hope continues if/when the next two volumes happen. " - Colin Horgan, developer of Lucah: Born of A Dream 

"THE definitive close reading." - Alex Pieschel, ex-Arcade Review

"Austin's critical exploration of Final Fantasy 7's anti-capitalist themes is excellent. His writing is confident, energetic & thoroughly engaging. If you like good writing about good games, pick up a copy." - Corey Milne, Unwinnable
