Hello blossoming young-hearted bright-eyed game designers!
This episode is just for you as it features a panel recorded at Metatopia 2016 titled " "Intro To Game Design and Development" - This panel focuses on the various philosophies and perspectives modern tabletop designers employ when taking their first steps towards understanding the basic principles of the games they design and develop. Topics include the philosophies of past famous designers, mistakes new designers make, modern influences on tabletop design, trending mechanics in the industry, designing with manufacturing in mind, and the various ways people begin the basic development processes."
