  • IMGDC Day One Summary

    GamersInfo posted another article from IMGDC today. This one is a summary of day one events.

    After the keynote address, the day started for me with a panel on Designing Non-standard MMO's with Standard Tools by Celia Pearce. Celia is an academic researcher who had spent time looking at emergent social behavior in MMO's. One of the games she mentioned most often was Uru, the online version of Myst. In her study, she'd watched how the players would work together to make sense of the world they were playing in.

  • Keynote Address Overview

    GamersInfo has updated their site today with this look at Dr. Richard Bartle's keynote address as the recent IMDGC.

    The difference between players who want to be designers and true game designers is that players who want to be designers just want to play their own design. They think that infamous “well how hard can it be” line, and decide that if no one else is going to make the game they want to play, they'll make it themselves. If, on the other hand, you get people together with actual design talent, what he referred to as a “critical mass of talent”, you get that same “flowering” of game design that happened back in 1989.

  • IMGDC: Celia Pearce and Mermaids

    MMORPG.com posted an article today that gives an overview of the presentation offered by Ceilia Pearce.

    Basically, Pearce and her team hope to create a game that will allow them to study what kinds of things the players do with it. As a result of their unique situation and goals, their perspective, and therefore the game that they are creating is something interesting and different. Pearce, herself an accomplished developer, educator and author, seems very interested in using Mermaids to challenge the conventions of the current MMORPG industry in a way that few others are even in a position to try.

    GAMEPLAY NOTES
    - Players can now obtain unicorn and shadowhound mounts.
    - Hitting escape will no longer immediately drop you out of PVP combat so you won't be able to hit out of combat abilities repeatedly.
    - Many abilities intended to get a damage bonus undead and procs on undead were working against anything. This has been fixed and they now only work on undead enemies.
