Designer Wisdom

Curated By Cardboard Edison

“Look at your theme, really look at it. What is it made of, what does it do, how does it do it, why, when, where? All of it. Take it apart and really look at what you have. Stop trying to make a ‘game’ when you can make an experience, something the players will talk about and feel like they were involved.” – Benny Sperling
