I’ve had this blog for a while now. Initially I just posted prototypes and wrote occasionally. In 2017 I decided to write a substantial piece on elegant game design. I also decided I would start posting weekly. That article took a while to write and edit. I posted it on Friday, September 1, 2017 and have been posting every Friday since. Nothing has reached the depth of that first article, but I like to think some of my posts are still helpful.
After posting that article it got some good feedback and I started thinking about how to expand upon it. I thought it would be great to have a series of episodes on the podcast discussing the different sections. Ideally with some guests that have some experience in each of the topics.
Well it took some time, and hosting a design contest, to finally push me to get it setup. But I’m in the process of scheduling the 4 episodes and should be recording in January. I’ve got a great group of guests lined up to discuss graphic design, theme & illustration, physical design, and time.
I’m sure I’ll post about it again once the episodes release, but if you want to be sure not to miss it you can subscribe to www.theboadgameworkshop.com on your podcast platform of choice.
Also audience voting for the design contest finals is still open until December 30th. So go give some feedback to the 5 finalists.
