The other day I saw an academic program geared to mobile game design. I was immediately fascinated by the subject, and sought to learn little more. Then I wondered what kind of games would I produce if I was taking these courses. This lead to me inventing some left of center concepts that felt satirical, funny, and playful at the same time. At the time, I didn’t want to delve too much into it, as I was supposed to be working on another project, however my mind keeps drifting back to it.
Let me say its not that I think I’m suddenly going into game design, or that I’ll be the super hit nobody knows about yet. It’s that the thought of concepts for new territory fueled my creative needs. And I like that I had concepts I could explore in my head, and eventually on paper. One concept had me laughing, cause I’m like, “who’s gonna play this,” but at the same time, I’m putting it down. It doesn’t matter who would play this, i was at least amused to think of motives, goals, and what the risk success could be. The only thing I didn’t think of is what will happen if the main character doesn’t get what they want, and I figured it out.
For most stories, if the characters followed the sensible paths, the story would be over. This has been my silly moments for this evening, and I love it. Gotta keep smiling and writing.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
