It 's hard to find good writing on design. It 's hard to find writing on design, period, from either critics or developers. It sure is easy to find think pieces though My goal is to write about the design of games - the specific decisions that were made for ...

Cool. 5 is not a lot, even for F2P, but it should prevent a large chunk of spam. I just hope Valve ensures that the people who sign up because they 've received a gift-game are still be able to befriend others and use the full feature-set.

Yup, I mentioned that approach above, get a free hit on any adjacent enemies that try to walk away, but making it a universal rule presented its own issues for us. First, we wanted to retain the free-hit mechanic as a passive ability for just one unit to make that ...

Interesting. I haven 't heard of paid Kickstarter boost services before, but it 's not surprising that they exist. Thanks for sharing.

I took a hand at writing about SMB 3 's design a while ago http://www.significant-bits.com/super-mario-bros-3-level-design-lessons , and I fully realize how long these analyses can take. Good job, and thanks for the link to Patrick Holleman s site. Will take a look at your Brick by Brick series in a ...
