Herding Cats: Ludonarrative Dissonance at Gen Con 2017

This is a crosspost from our sister show Ugly Talk!  Go subscribe if you haven’t already.

This is a panel from Gen Con 2017. Travis talks about Ludonarrative Dissonance (Fludonarrative discobiscuits if you’re hungry).

If you’ve been in the video game blog-o-sphere at some point, you have heard of LND (I’m not typing out the entire word you can’t make me). But is it necessarily the pejorative term as its become in video game circles. Listen to this panel from Gen Con that gives the answer: NO. Most of all if anything LND is a feature most Tabletop GMs and Players are intimately familiar with, but haven’t realized there was a term for. As such, listen in, learn a thing (maybe), and speak up if you have questions. Welcome to Herding Cats: Ludonarrative Dissonance and Players. (Dammit you tricked me into writing the full things again…)

Indie Design the Chicken Salad Way at Gen Con 2015

Gen Con 2015: Matt Campen and Ross Payton sat down and talked about their shared experiences designing, publishing, and producing roleplaying games.

Game Design is a long and tedious process. Turning a pile of notes into a book can seem nearly impossible. There’s a phrase in journalism that all the mayonnaise in the world can’t turn chicken crap into chicken salad; nevertheless, you have to do it over and over each time.

This panel explores the essential steps to consider when looking at your loose-chicken-parts collective of ideas and a formula to turn it into some chicken salad goodness.
