if a mainstream games site is willing to cover it it’s not weird enough

if it doesn’t run in a web browser it might as well not exist

when the player says there is a problem they are usually right. when they tell you what the problem is they are always wrong

the game world should go on whether anyone’s playing it or not

some games are mines. some games are gardens. make gardens, not mines

most people who say the word “game” actually mean “vending machine”

take the most distinctive characteristic of the thing you just made, and make it MORE SO. do this especially if the most distinctive characteristic is bad

you learn where the edges of a medium are by pushing in a direction until something breaks

there are three acceptable timeframes for game development: 2 hours, 2 weeks, or 2 decades

where ? does it fit ? into the player’s life ???
