One Game Dad 2: Fire for the imagination
Episode 2 is now available on Twitch, Youtube and iTunes.
Today's topic includes raccoon hunting in Firewatch and a discussion of imagination and what it takes to stimulate it. Basically I ramble on about how my imagination feels stunted of late due to the lack of stimulation, while also highlighting the beauty of Campo Santo's game and how it leaves so much to the imagination.
Creativity and the ability to create something good and in a timely manner is often about constraints. Too few and you're hindered by the paradox of choice. Too many and you're overburdened. The games that last the longest and are most exciting are those that have a good balance, which is why we see sports like rugby continue to thrive.
