Raph Koster Social Mechanics for Social Games

Filed under: games — Tags: , , — zproxy @ 9:12 am

Cory has directed me to a new awesome presentation from Raph Koster.

A few highlights:

  • Players compete to get stuff, and whatever I get, you can’t have.
  • I can take your stuff, you can take my stuff
  • A game where players have secret roles
  • Transitions of state (birth, marriage, death, levelling up)
