Making great games: Bethesda's trade-secrets revealed!

Todd Howard, everyone's favourite designer, who thinks that reading is too hard and loves the "vibrant and fresh" Final Fantasy series, has finally revealed his trade-secrets in an e-book called Great games are played by me!, available as an Oblivion plug-in for only $2.99.

My favorite part of the working day is...

I have a few hours in the middle of each day when I play the latest builds of everything. The rest of the time is meetings, some of which I love, some not-so-much. But it’s the private time to play a build and make notes that is probably the most 'fun'. As a project gets further along, those play sessions involve more people at once, watching me play so I can just yell out comments, and those are the best. 'Great games are played, not made', is my office motto, so I love when we’re playing our game and adjusting it as we go.
The mind boggles


Thanks, Llyranor
