New Column for the ECGF: About Game Design

Announcing a new column on the Emerald City Gamefest Web site: About Game Design. This column is not a guide to game design, but more along the lines of the philosophy of game design, with some “how-to-do-its” and not a little bit of practical advice for would-be game designers or even more experienced ones.

The author, John Reiher, has been in the gaming industry since the 70’s, working primarily with Tri Tac Games, Outpost Games, and other game companies. Along with other writers, he’ll expound on the philosophy and sometimes the theory of game design, with an eye to helping out the novice designer to avoid the pitfalls that most game designers encounter.
