Six words about the role of inspiration in game design
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.
According to tweetdeck, one of the trending:worldwide topics on twitter last year was 6 word stories. Since then I've asked people to say 6 words about game design, programming, wargames, stories in games, casual games, zombie games, chance/randomness in games, innovation and plagiarism in games, social networking games, game sequels, and "If I could give a present to the game industry this Christmas". Contributions are sometimes amusing, sometimes serious, sometimes worth remembering.
This time the challenge is this: say six words about the role of inspiration in game design.
