In Topic: You Should Steal From Other Game Designers

13 November 2012 - 11:02 PM

I posted this article in several forums, and this is the only one with a community that took to it with their own great ideas and opinions. Thanks for that!

I would disagree with Wildfield in that taking mechanics from other games is NOT wrong. What's wrong is taking all of a game's individual mechanics and creating a clone with them. In the article I talked about how a great designers can identify one great mechanic in a game (like line-drawing), and then use it in a different system to create something new and fun. That's "creative stealing."
