For this special livestream, I hung out with two of the founders of Strife Games to talk about the challenge of creating casual design. While their focus is on tabletop, the lessons we talked about could also apply to traditional game design as well.
This week, we went live for a discussion on Tabletop game design with Brian Cronin. He is currently working on the tabletop card game: One Last Job. We talked about how luck and probability impacts the design and playing of a game.
This is part 2 of a chat we had, with part 1 going up on Game-Wisdom in a few weeks.
To follow Brian and learn more about the game, here are some links:
This week, David D’Angelo of Yacht Club Games returned to the cast to catch up and talk about designing Shovel Knight and what’s next for our hero.
