Lesens-, hörens- und sehenswerte Fundstücke aus der Welt der Spiele.
Christian Huberts: Die Spieler scheißen auf den größten Haufen
- “Death Stranding belohnt somit Influencer. Jeder möchte viel Laufpublikum für seine Leitern und am Ende führen gleich fünf über denselben Fluss. Der Teufel, in dem Fall der Spieler, scheißt auf den größten Haufen. Alle anderen können der Elite zumindest den erhobenen Daumen zeigen.”
Jonathan Blow: Making Games in 2019 and Beyond
- “It’s hard for people to understand what your game will be. […] Look, feedback is good. […] Seeing other people interact with your game can shatter any illusions that you may have. […] On the other hand […] if you release something in early access and it’s far from what it’s going to be, I think most of the feedback will be incorrect.“
Mark Brown: The Most Innovative Game of 2019
- “While making an open-ended puzzle game sounds great, it’s open to easy answers […] so the designer’s job is to actually lock you in and force restrictions on you.”
Rym DeCoster & Scott Rubin: Take Your #@*$ Turn!
- “If a game is fun, but it takes a long time, it’s not that good. Or at least it has a low fun economy. […] If you can find a game that is a certain amount of fun, but takes like 10 or 20 or 30 minutes to play, that game is probably objectively better as a game, and you should seek those games out. You should reward the games […] that respect you enough to not waste your time.”
Stephen Blessing: The Incan Gold Experiment (GameTek 213.5)
- “We had an abstract condition, which is devoid of any content or theme. […] The abstracts, regardless if they were playing more risky or more cautious […] scored higher than the other two conditions, and they also took significantly less time playing.”
