Adriaan Jansen's Blog
Hello dear visitor!
My name is Adriaan Jansen, one of the founders and designer at the Utrecht-based Abbey Games in the Netherlands. I like to play games, make games, think about games, discussing games and occasionally, being left the heck alone.
How does the theme play a roll in the creation of a game?
How do you make someone feel like a god in god games, without hurting the challenge?
So you've got everything it needs to be a game designer? Congratulations! Be sure not to step in one of these pitfalls though...
We know what a game designer does, and what are good talents to have. But what can you learn to become a better game designer?
We can all learn new skills, but what are favorable character traits for a game designer?
So you're browsin' around on Gamasutra, curious to learn more about being a game designer. However, game designer sounds a big vague...Do you know what the game designer does on a daily basis?

Also, there is a very real difference between mentor-student relationships where the mentor is clearly the higher authority and a leader-mentor relationship where ...

For better or worse, I think it 's just a matter of time before some smart shop owner bundles some of the best stalls together to create a store. r nAlso, consumers are mostly interested in the extremes: The best, the cheapest, the highest value, the trendiest etc. There can ...
