Lesens-, hörens- und sehenswerte Fundstücke aus der Welt der Spiele.


Elliot George: Emergence and Chaos in Games

  • „So there is a kind of tension here, chaos is good for increasing the number of mental models that we use, and therefore offers a lot of opportunities for systemic learning, but it also increases the usefulness of memorisation, which is mostly surface learning.“

Ethan Hoeppner: Information Generalizability

  • „Given that the core purpose of a game is to provide the player with interesting decisions that the player isn’t certain about, every moment spent calculating is at best a moment wasted, and at worst a mental burden that distracts from the important parts of the game. Thus, games should seek to have as little calculation as possible.“

Guido Henkel: A new recipe for the roleplaying game formula

  • „As I play through the current fare of CRPGs I can’t help but feel the genre has stagnated and has become utterly formulaic. I strongly feel that it is time for the next step in the evolution of the genre. Let us make use of the technologies and incredible processing power at our disposal for more than stunning visuals.“

Keith Burgun: Arcs in Strategy Games

  • „Arcs is one of the main ways you achieve a structural through-line between playing […] and winning or losing. […] If you have a good structural understanding of your arrangement of arcs, it suddenly becomes quite easy to know how short or long your game should be, which historically has been a pure mystery.“

Michael Ardizzone: Analogy And The Process Of Design

  • „There are plenty of ways we can improve on the modern process of game design incrementally, both through attaining a better understanding of game rules in the abstract, and also through using analogy more expertly and carefully given our knowledge of its limitations, but great power, as a design tool.“

Interview

Wolfgang Walk bei Pixelwarte

  • „Die Kunstform ist als ästhetisches und psychologisches Medium oder Wirkfaktor zu jung, um so untersucht zu sein, dass es Experten geben könnte. Es gibt sicherlich Leute, die mehr wissen als andere aber echte Experten sehe ich noch nicht.“
