Toys are very, very durable. There 's very few things that can damage a toy. The only thing I can think of which can damage a toy is a goal.

First of all, I should ...

First of all, I should start by saying that words have many definitions. What you 're advocating - that game includes interactive fiction, is already true for one of the most popular usages of the word. In fact, I 'd say most people use game to refer to any interactive ...

I would re-frame exploration aesthetic as playing with a toy as opposed to playing a game. Videogame-style asymmetry and customization are great tools for toys, but I think if that 's what we 're going for, we ought to focus on making the best toys possible. We don 't want ...

Nice article, Chris. r n r nI often take for granted the fact that I was doing level design in elementary school, and a lot of these lessons that you 're nodding to, about difficulty for example, are just not things that most players have ever really had access to, ...

I actually have noticed the opposite. I almost never get serious feedback from people, even when I directly ask them for it. Game designers seem to have this weird force field up against each other actually, where no one criticizes anyone 's work. Everything is either THIS IS THE BEST ...
