Retweeted by Jerica (Jordan Erica Webber) @bonzrat Congratulations!!!I’m looking forward to getting back to Leamington for a bit, but first I’m stopping off at the BBC to play a video game 🎮🎙Importantly, I had some lovely food and got to have my annual Shakeaway milkshake 😍My tweets were originally prompted in turn by a talk given by Mette Andersen about social simulation in Hitman: idle twitter musings got quoted in a talk! bye Brighton! I just spilled tea over myself, but aside from that and some other downers (illness etc), I’ve had a lovely Develop. @florencesn Oh my gosh! This sounds so interesting! I’m touched to be quoted!

@mtrc okay that’s it! I think the talk will be online for some people? @mtrc e.g. choices in a text adventure are semi-hidden (do you go to the cave or the mountain – you know what caves… @mtrc a consideration: are the choices hidden (e.g. pick a face-down card) or open (choose a meal from these in front of you) @mtrc a difficulty: with no magician present to force you to make a choice, the player usually has more time to think things over @mtrc equivocation, where the magician says “touch one” and then moves the plate forwards or backwards depending if… @mtrc so maybe you accentuate the route you want players to take (e.g. through lighting) @mtrc people are FAR more likely to pick a card that is shown for slightly longer @mtrc so maybe you focus most of your resources in that third of four choices, or you rearrange them randomly to ensure more variety @mtrc next: stereotypical choice patterns, e.g. right-handed people are likely to pick the card third from the right @mtrc (this only really works for single-play games) @mtrc now we’re onto forcing players to make a particular choice, like “pick any card” but the deck is all the same… @mtrc so far it’s about setting up expectations of logical causal relationships as patterns you then break to surprise the player (I think) @mtrc @shringcy I’m sorry, I’ve been so caught up in it I’ve forgotten to live tweet!the first talk I’ve decided to go to at Develop this year has a hell of a concept @Lef0nda I’ll try ❤️ @SamMGreer 🙏😭Unfortunately I can’t just stay in my hotel room because a) I’ve got stuff to do and b) it’s like a sauna in thereDevelop friends, I feel VERY unwell today – if you see me, please be kind
