I'm here to write about games with animals.
People love animals in games , a developer friend of mine tell me that the player can not identificate with an animal, people need to take a person to know how to put their mind in the game, let's call it, the center.
The center of animal games could be about farming, you can play with animals, but in your mind is still the idea of there is a person after all the work in the farm...he is the farmer ,the identification model we have created.
Why are animal games so much downloaded if people needs people models to identificate?
Well, if you love animals, you have to be something different, so, we are humans, loving animals, and that is right.
What do you think?
