Rune Of Play

By Daniel Slawson

This site is written by me, Daniel Slawson. I’m an amateur game designer, and this blog is about the importance of careful, deliberate design.

As Stéphane Bura said:

This is a very exciting time to be a video game designer. Video game design is evolving from a barely understood activity done by genius designers driven by their gut feelings, to a craft with shared techniques and methodologies. A common vocabulary cobbled from various fields (interface design, psychology, complex systems, physics, etc.) is slowly emerging.

This blog is an effort to build that framework.

If you enjoy my work, please consider becoming a patron. I appreciate any support, no matter how small, and offer some perks for your consideration.
