A living game has an evergreen design philosophy at its heart. This means crafting the game to stand the test of time, to be expandable without becoming overwhelming or dull. This isn’t just a design consideration during a game’s initial creation, it means careful curation as the game grows and evolves over many years.
A living game empowers its players to have a real voice in its future, so they have a say in how it is shaped and run. For us, the relationship between our players and our teams is key; whether it’s on social channels or in live-streamed shows – it’s about sharing design docs and concept art, pitching content and feature ideas to players, getting their input through polls and surveys, and collaborating together.
