I hope we get to a point where action is just one element in a broad set of tools designers can use to create compelling games. Using objects in the real world is one extreme and all our computer, smartphone and computer gaming addictions are at the other extreme. The feel In order to assist in transforming the concept of playing with water physics into compelling puzzle game, I was tasked with creating spaces that would turn the normally smooth journey from water to a bathtub into a far more complicated process. This requires technical mastery, inventive design, careful planning, all brought together with great showmanship to keep the audience swept up in the experience (rather than the technicalities). To make these advancements, Mozilla developed a highly-optimized version of JavaScript that supercharges a developer's gaming code in the browser to enable visually compelling, fast, 3D gaming experiences on the Web. Building Mixed Reality experiences is technically difficult and gets even harder as you move closer to the center of the MR spectrum. In his first exclusive column for GamesIndustry, Warren Spector ponders why game designers aren't making games of real significance. (As a side note, isn't it interesting how time dilation games (hereafter referred to as CRPGs). So the games have to be designed at a level that work with the technology. Today's blog post is a bit of a time warp, as it discusses games that span decades—and when you're talking about decades and gaming, especially video gaming, you're talking about a long time. Unfortunately, the actual experience couldn't be further from the truth as repetitive and uninspired level design overshadows much of what makes the game entertaining and addictive. It also doesn't help that the The narrative, or better yet lack of narrative, has players controlling the character Morgan that is tasked with returning water to his river after it's been stolen for use in a "uber-spa" being created by the evil Count Soap II. So, for example, we have 2D platform games such as Super Mario World and Sonic the Hedgehog where the notion of player rhythm explains much about level design [Sandbox08]. It's just one of the best mobile games out there. A good level designer understands what I call “the feel,” an abstract concept that simply refers to the emotional reaction a player experiences to an interactive event. While there are some concepts, such as pacing and tension, that span multiple genres, to provide compelling explanations for how to create game levels requires an analytical approach that is tailored to a specific genre. Armageddon joins a number of other Warhammer games in progress, including Warhammer Quest and the upcoming Space Hulk adaptation. It's fair to say that I've been playing CRPGs since the very earliest incarnations, and I have actively studied the genre from a design, experience, critiquing, and writing perspective. Why is The games and apps have to be designed around the technology and the player has to find that compelling.
