September 24, 2007: General Tso On Game Design

"Emperor Wu wished to publish a game. He consulted his advisors, asking them, How can I best accomplish this?"

These ten maxims on game design, published in the online magazine Chimera, were mentioned on an industry mailing list. I read, was delighted, and read again. Not only are the Ten Points presented with both wit and brevity . . . they genuinely constitute more good advice on game design than I've seen in some entire books. Without further ado: General Tso: The Ten Points, with the Commentaries.
