Talk at Sweden Game Conference
Random Challenges - randomness in strategy game design
Randomness is a powerful and important tool in the game designer's toolbox. Due to its nature, it can also be difficult to use - especially in strategy games. In this talk, I will discuss how we built a strategic experience based on a random core mechanic in our game Circadian Dice, and how we approached the different challenges that came with designing a game whose systems contain a lot of randomness.
