Challenging Stage

This looks like a Tron 2 tie in, but it’s a good bit of trivia.  I think you can get something promotional if you get them all.  I got about 30 before I realized I should have logged in.

A Series of Meaningful Choices

Posted by on 22 Mar 2010 | Tagged as: Game a Week, Talk

This is the inaugural post of this blog. Now, whether or not Sid Meier actually said the quote, or some derivation of it is moot. This blog is about gameplay and games, however you want to define them.

Postings linking to interesting games and useful articles will appear here, but this is also a space for a project that YJ and I will be doing.

Games can be defined by being comprised of 4 parts: gameplay, art, story, and technology. On a weekly basis, YJ will create art for me. I have no idea what the pieces will look like, but my task will be to come up with rules and make a game that revolves around a theme defined by the pieces or something taken from Jesse Schell’s Deck of Lenses. If the game is served by a story, then we’ll come up with one. Mercifully, these being analog games, the technology side will probably amount to a printer and scissors.

Crazy Week

Posted by on 15 Mar 2010 | Tagged as: Ruminating

Last week was the GDC. It was super stressful, but at the same time I had a lot of fun and got to do a lot of things. I’m glad You-Jin was able to join me for some stuff, and I know it was really stressful on her as well. Fortunately, the week is over and I can go back to being stressed in the comfort of my own home.

I just wanted to say that my girlfriend is awesome. Beyond awesome. A level of awesomeness so awesome that there aren’t even words in the English language to describe her awesomeness.
