Designers really care about their games and ideas. When you talk with them, their passion is evident. Unfortunately, this passion doesn’t always translate into the game itself. These games leave the player feeling bored and indifferent. How can a designer ensure that his passion is palpable in his game? What is the difference between a game with authentic caring and those without it? This talk will explore the definition of “authentic caring” and why it comes through in some games, while falling flat in others.
