  1. Grammar for Game Designers

    Hey everyone, I've made a video that analysis how one can leverage grammar to help them design a game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gsLGadyuJ0 Topics include verb-noun description of games, as well as verb-noun graphs. In the video I compare games such as The Incredible Machine, Defense of the Ancients 2, Okami, Mario 64 and Final Fantasy 13 from that pretext.   Overall discussion topics from the video are: How do verbs and nouns relate to game design? How can we leverage these concepts to help us understand a games replayability? Looking forward to your feedback =) Cheers
  2. The Prison of Gaming Terms

    Hello everyone, On this video I look at how gaming terms can influence how one thinks about games & their design. I use the game Enslaved Odyssey to the West as a case study for that.   If you're interested, check it out here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZPAGdTggz8   I look forward to getting your feedback! Cheers
  3. The Paradox of Tutorials

    Hey everyone, I've made a new game design analysis video. This time I focused on tutorials and how they can conflict with a players expectations and the characters lore. I looked into games such as Dishonored, Dragon Age Inquisition, Gears of War and Spec Ops the Line and compared how they addressed those problems. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVeF8zGs-ss Let me know what you think!

  6. The Rosebud Condominium

    Great feedback Waterlimon! One question, regarding your second bullet point. When you said the scrollign needs to be faster, did you mean when using the mouse wheel or when hovering with the mouse over the bottom and top edges of the screen?
  7. The Rosebud Condominium

    General feedback I got is that HTML5 on Firefox isn't ideal yet. I tried myself and the game takes ages to load (as opposed to seconds on Chrome and IE). I haven't tried on old IE yet, but feel free to give it a shot and let me know of your experience =)
  8. The Rosebud Condominium

    Hey folks, I made this indie game with a few friends to test some game design ideas. It would be great to get your feedback Note - game is best played on Chrome, IE or Safari.   www.versus-software.com/rosebud     Cheers!
