I spent 1500 all expenses incurred to attend GDC 2002 in San Jose back in the day. I could afford it at the time. I don 't regret having done it that once, to see what it was all about, but I have not been interested in attending a GDC ...

The risk of focusing on worldbuilding, especially as an offline process the reader will not see, is you are thematically investing in the logic of that world as a simulation. Not in the psychological effects of the writing craft upon the reader. Indeed that is where the clomping foot of ...

Ok, I lost interest in reading more Gamasutra threads halfway through. Alll the ones I did read, that were supposed to contain sexism, contained some poster that was banned. Moderation is working as designed, there is no problem here.

Right, people don 't sufficiently consider that they 're participating in a societal pyramid scheme. Some indies survive and do well and become visible to consumers. Many don 't. The difficulty of an industry could be measured by how many people are at the top of the pyramid, vs. how ...

It 's tough to build a good one with any kind of authenticity to the style one practices. Doing one for Systema, my dominant style now, would be a heavy research project. Then there 's the narrative and gameplay problem of getting an audience to care about the subtleties. Moviegoers ...

Is that a good thing When I judged in the IGF for 6 years, quite a number of years ago, getting through the first round entrants could be quite a burden. Once that initial vetting had been accomplished, picking among finalists was more enjoyable. I haven 't paid much attention ...

I 'm not sure how to react. I like the sales pitch, but I don 't happen to have played most of the games cited as examples of depth. r n r nThe one I have, Minecraft Alpha , I don 't agree that it was deep. It definitely gave ...

I assume that a Facebook gift card or equivalent, is a prepaid, preloaded card that can only be used for the amount of value contained in the card. So the risk is the child blowing the 50 or whatever the giver gave them on the card, not the 1000 button ...
