Other People’s Thoughts – Patrick Curry on Game Design

In March of the last year, Patrick Curry (lead designer for Stubbs the Zombie game) published this curious article:

http://www.patrickcurry.com/thoughts/how-to-become-a-game-designer-in-four-simple-steps/

I believe that its still valid – as far as I see it, game design (or any kind of design, for that matter) is about tasteful incorporation of daily elements of living into one cohesive whole.

All philosophy aside – look more carefully into step 3 and you’ll see a note about IGDA (http://www.igda.org/) and then you can take a look at a list of their chapters all over the world and see if there’s one in your city:

    I’ve been following Patrick Curry for awhile now, he’s got some interesting thoughts on the process of design. I’m going to go to his talk at GDC (https://www.cmpevents.com/GD08/a.asp?option=C&V=11&SessID=6347) this year, it ought to prove very useful.

    Interesting blog you’ve got, I’ve been following the Boston scene longer than I’ve been following Patrick Curry, it certainly has grown a lot in recent years.

    Thank You, thank You!

    Lately, I’ve been reading a lot about game industry and game design and all those things.

    I really want to learn a thing or two about game design, so Your blog is quite helpful.

    🙂
