Games Can Give You All The Feels

 

“Instead of thinking of your game from the mechanics first, think about the aesthetics first…Think of the feelings that you want to bring to the players. I believe if you start with the aesthetics and move backwards towards the mechanics through the dynamics, you can create successful games.”
