I wonder to what extent two design features strongly affect engagement with a game: r n r n1. Save-anytime/anywhere vs. checkpoint saving esp. at diegetic save stations . My guess is that play sessions will be longer for games that implement a quicksave feature, compared to games for which the ...

I was one of those inspired to create a computer version of Othello. r n r nThe fun wasn 't in the presentation, but in crafting the opposing player. A two-move lookahead plus board analysis heuristics was all I could eke out of my 0.89 MHz Color Computer, even with ...
