Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

i have an infection in my butt, a game design infection

    Big teasing Americans saying things like "oh you should totally make a Kickstarter for X!"

    Well I can't! I know when I'm being mocked

    I was going to sign up for all the tea in China @neville, but I couldn't see what the reward for that level of donation was.

    $955k! Guys, I'll make you a deal. If we hit $980k I'll add RTS elements to the game! And if we hit $1M, I'll take them back out!

    Earlier today we learned that Adam Adamowicz, one of the main concept artists behind Fallout 3, Skyrim and other Bethesda titles, passed away today. It was silently announced, but I'd like to shine some light on Adam because he was an anomaly in the game industry, a veritable one-man conceptual machine, who unlike his contemporary counterparts, did a majority of his work in non digital mediums. Fallout 3 was pretty much visually designed from the ground up by one humble man who got little to no recognition, nor sought it.

    check out the gallery

    dude did some great work

    had a meeting with the director of game design at a local private school

    i asked 'what sort of questions should i be asking?' at the end

    and he basically said 'where you want to work'

    and then i was like 8-)

    designer: twisted metal series

    also, God of War 1/2

    which makes it doubly weird to me that he would say something like that

    not that the GoW stories are amazing or anything, but there is very obviously a focus on story there

    Anyone who says that games/action movies/whatever have to be mindless fun with little or no themes or narrative considerations

    Is a little bit dumb

    I wonder what he has to say about that part in God of War 1 where you sacrifice the soldier.

    "Pushing that cage would have been just as interesting if it was empty, no one cares about character development"?

    He's probably saying that if a game is designed to serve a story, then that game will end up worse than a game whose story was designed around the gameplay. So, for the cage-pushing example, the game being designed around the story would end up in a situation where that thing ends up in a tacked-on cutscene, because the story element was created outside the scope of the game and so there is no concept of pushing objects (whether or not those objects contain duders). A story designed around the gameplay, however, would say, "How can we make pushing this box really compelling?"

    Yeah, that's what how I read it too. Except forget even designing the story around the gameplay... If there's no story at all, then the gameplay has to stand on its own.

    Saying it's a bad idea and a waste of resources is kind of silly though. If the company is making a profit on their efforts, it's hardly a bad idea.

  • LegbaLegba Registered User regular
    So Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert put up a thing in relation to Double Fine Adventure where they talk about adventure games for half an hour. It's interesting.

    Are you going to break it into three or four pieces as a series or are you just going to go BAM

    i think i'm going to publish a truncated version as a paginated post and then do an expanded ebook

  • OrikaeshigitaeOrikaeshigitae Registered User, ClubPA regular
    this is what happens when you have a writer who teaches himself game design

  • EdcrabEdcrab Registered User regular
    Well I'll read all those versions, in that case
