I am a programmer and designer at Pocket Gems.
I love prototyping games and participating in jams. I also really like breaking down problems with my games to their root causes and I like solutions that solve multiple problems at once. Elegance in games is very important to me.
Depth and complexity are core concepts for the successful design of a game. However, both of them have become overloaded in meaning and sometimes feel indistinguishable. Here is my current thinking on these two subjects.
Gods Will Be Watching doesn't try to be fun, and that allows them to do interesting things with their game. Here, I analyze the decisions the game makes that normally would be unthinkable.
