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


Dinofarm Community Podcast: Episode 3 (Core Mechanism / Decision)

  • „The clockwork game design model is built around a single core. It’s kind of like a thesis statement in an essay, or the controlling idea of a story, or the chorus of a song. Some basic piece of information that the design is centered around.“

Kris Graft: New Doom’s deceptively simple design

  • „Here’s how [Marty] Stratton and Id creative director Hugo Martin defined the idea of combat chess: speed of movement; individuality of the demons; distinctiveness of the weapons; overall power of the player; and the idea of make me think, make me move.“

Noclip: The Witness Documentary

  • „What makes a puzzle interesting is not really difficulty. It’s pretty easy to make a puzzle arbitrarily difficult: put more stuff in. […] This makes it harder, but not really more interesting. In fact it goes in the opposite direction of interesting. Interesting is when […] there is a clear idea that you come to see in the process of solving it.“

Peter Termini: Designing Around A Games‘ Identity

  • „Focusing on your games‘ identity is extremely important, especially for smaller games/studios. Every game has its fan base, some are a lot smaller than others. If your fan base is small, that’s fine, but try to think about why they like your game.“

Raph Koster: Abstract Games

  • „Music could be described as the art of sound, and sculpture as the art of mass, and so on. Games in some way could be thought of as the art of math. Another way to think of a game is that it is teaching us the machinery of itself.“
