Bingo: A whole journal issue on videogames Thursday, February 09 2006 Articles It's REALLY frustrating when you cannot get access to articles online. If you do game research, you know what I am talking about. I don't want to go into rant mode but let me just say: whenever you can, put the pdf online. I just accidentally run into a pdf version of the International Digital Media & Arts Association Journal, published on Spring 2005. It's dedicated in full to videogames and includes articles by such people as Chris Crawford, Janet Murray, Espen Aarseth, James Gee, Ian Bogost, Michael Mateas and many more. Stuff I haven't read by people I care. On a pdf file. Downloadable. Free for everybody. All over the world. This is great. This makes me happy. I actually may put down Animal Crossing DS just to take a look at this pdf. I am happy indeed.

IGDA - Articles - Bill of Rights

by bcpbcp
I first presented A Game Developers' Bill of Rights at a keynote presentation at the Montreal International Game Summit in November 2005. The Bill of Rights was part of a larger talk called Making and Breaking Rules: Game Design as a Critical Practice , which touched on issues of game design and the culture of games, as well as the business of the game industry. Following my talk, I prepared this short essay for the IGDA site.

Game Design Challenges | Collateral Romance

by bcpbcp
"Eric Zimmerman has run "Game Design Challenges" at several GDC's now. At each, he picks a difficult topic to design a game about, and then lets loose three designers to come up with a game based on the topic. I participated in the inaugural one in 2004, losing to Will Wright's "Collateral Romance" idea, which involved setting non-combatants down inside a first person shooter, with the task of making it to the other side a la Casablanca, and hoping that they would form attachments along the way. Warren Spector didn't come up with a game idea, and I presented what's below."

The Philosophical Roots of Computer Game Design

by bcpbcp (via)
"This is an approximate transcript of the text of my lecture at the 2004 GDC. I present it in this form because the nature of the material does not lend itself to the traditional paper format. Also, because the lecture is informal and to some extent ad-libbed, this is not a verbatim document."

Are you serious? from Guardian Unlimited: Gamesblog

by bcpbcp
"Last week gamesblog covered Persuasive Games' latest release Airport Insecurity, "a game about inconvenience and the tradeoffs between security and rights in American airports". I grabbed Ian Bogost, one half of the company (and one-half of the blog watercoolergames) to explain exactly what he means by "serious games"."

Lost Garden: Mini Game Design Reviews: Guitar Hero and Wierd Worlds

by bcpbcp
"I wanted to briefly mention two very different games that I’ve been spending time with recently. The first is Guitar Hero by Harmonix and the second is Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space by Digital Eel. Neither is a traditional game, and both have some good lessons about game design to share."

Gamasutra - Book Excerpt - "21st Century Game Design: Designing for the Market"

by bcpbcp
"Why is game design often overlooked as an important factor contributing to game sales? Perhaps because when most people in development companies talk about “good game design,” they mean “game design that produced a game I really like.” This sort of subjective validation of game design is of no use in business, which thrives on repeatable methods based around capturing a target audience—the market. Unable to see the profit resulting from “good design”— especially since many allegedly well-designed games fail commercially— most businessmen ignore design entirely."

Only a Game: A Game Design Grammar

by bcpbcp & 1 other
What does it mean to talk of a grammar of game design? And does specifying such a grammar give us an insight into the underlying structure of games, or a new method for approaching game design - or both? Because games vary from pure mathematical formalisms (at the ludic extreme) to behavioural descriptions (at the opposite extreme), any formal reductionistic system will either be focused primarily on the former, or require sufficient latitude to express practically infinite diversity. One such approach is to define a categorial grammar of game design.
