Game Design based on science


When we play games, our conscious mind has around one 1 second delay. But in the meantime, our subconscious is working much faster, with a reaction time at 0.25 seconds and only giving the most important information to our conscious. It been shown that our subconscious even can perceive things that only appears on a time frame as small as 0.02 seconds, this means that your game will be reviewed and analyzed in a much higher detail then what we consciously are aware of.
