Minimalist Game Design

release date: Feb 05, 2014
Minimalist Game Design
Guided by the theory of design minimalism where the predominant goal is to craft a game where nothing in the design is superfluous or used by coincidence, but carefully chosen to increase the accessibility, improve the interface, and meaningfully contribute to the game, Nealen and Saltsman (Award-winning Indie game designers) demonstrate how to find the smallest possible subset of mechanics and interfaces that lead to interesting and compelling gameplay. They illustrate by example with insights and philosophies from game industry veterans and independent game developers.
