In search of structure in game design.

Keith Burgun's perspective regarding game design is definitely worth listening to. Mostly due to the fact that he provides a more formal, perhaps academic view on ideas, mechanics, and design choices when making games. I haven't found that anywhere else.

Great cast for open minded game designers

The host is not afraid to share his opinions on game design theory, which are almost always grounded in some form of reasoning or understanding.

If you’re a fan of game design theory crafting, and aren’t afraid of listening to someone with a differing opinion, this is a must have cast!

Keep up the great work 👍

Good podcast with room to improve

This podcast is very new, but I appreciate the ideas put forth. The narrator uses it as a bit of a “soap box” to discuss his own ideas and seems a bit full of himself, but I don’t really consider being confident in your ideas a negative. I’d like it if he would talk about more concepts in existing popular games and what’s good or bad about them. While I enjoy hearing about his projects and getting his perspective I feel like theres some serious room to branch out. I’ll keep on listening because I feel like this podcast has yet to hit it’s full potential.
