5 New Articles on Game Design - Need Your Feedback

08 October 2014 - 10:10 AM

Hello GD community,

 

I have written 5 articles on game design that are, in my opinion, very useful to every game designer out there. But it is just my opinion, and I need your feedback, please be brutally honest with me.

 

A friend of mine told me that I don't promote my work so much, truth is I don't promote it at all (impostor syndrome ?), that's why I don't get feedback and I lack motivation to keep on writing.

 

Here are the links to my 5 latest articles on game design :

You will help me a lot by answering some of these questions :

  • What do you think of the content of my articles ? (feel free to discuss it here or in the comment section on my blog)
  • Is my writing clear enough, long enough ? Too short ?
  • How much do you like my blog ?
  • What would you suggest about the website in general ?
  • Would you like me to write more about game design ?
  • What makes you want to stay or leave when you visit my website or read my articles ?
